This one-day show, one of the largest cruise shows of its kind in the Northeast, will display antique and classic cars, trucks, sport cars and street rods - 1987 and older. Since 2001, Cruisin' has showcased more than 14,000 vintage vehicles to the delight of over 400,000 spectators. There will be food and music galore. Miss Connecticut will make an appearance, courtesy of CITGO Fueling Good. Spectator admission and parking is free.
