Thank you to Griots Garage and Mother's Polish for their continuing support of our event. And a very big thank you to Pete Corelli from Lakeview Custom Coach for taking on the judging responsibilities again this year. Also, a big shout out to Paul's Custom Awards and Trophies for fabulous trophies month after month.
A note on inclement weather: We apologize for cancelling Cruise Night in the case of rain. The decision to hold or cancel the event must be made by 1pm on the day of the event in order for Public Works and the Police Department to prepare. Attendance is also drastically reduced when rain is even threatened because car owners will often not drive on wet streets or if they believe their car may get wet during the evening. It is not an easy call to make, sometimes the weather changes, but it has to be called early.
You can always confirm that the event is on or off by checking www.collingswood.com and clicking on the Cruise Night tile or calling 856-858-9275 for a recorded message.
