Neighborhood Car Cruise planned on June 27 to start at Tamarack
Beckley Events, along with three car clubs – Shade Tree, Smooth Impressions and AACA, plan to offer a car cruise on Saturday, June 27, beginning at Tamarack.
The June 27 (rain date – July 11) cruise will line-up at Tamarack and cruise along Dry Hill Road, driving past Morgan Hills and Pine Hills and by the edge of Jamescrest, then over to Dearing Drive/Maxwell Hill Road, turning right onto Maxwell Hill Road and following to Robert C. Byrd Drive.
The AACA (Antique Automobile) Car Club’s National Rally was originally scheduled to be at Tamarack on June 26-27, but the rally had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Local members of the AACA are invited to participate in this cruise to show off their antique vehicles.
In addition to those vehicle owners who wish to show their unique rides, recent 2020 graduates are welcome to ride in the cruises. Musicians, organizations, businesses, mascots and costumed characters can also ride in the cruises to help bring joy to residents. Birthday parade entries can be included with the cruise to celebrate residents along the route whose birthday is on the cruise date.
The cruises line-up between 4:00 and 4:30 pm, and the ride begins around 4:40 pm – the rides normally take from 20 minutes to an hour to complete the route. If you do not live along the route, you can watch from your car in a parking lot along the route. Please continue social distancing whether you participate in the vehicle line-up or watch from a parking lot.
Five neighborhood cruises have happened so far in 2020 with weekly participation ranging from 60 vehicles to 140 vehicles. The organizers wish to thank everyone who has participated in or watched the cruises.
