BOONVILLE — This summer the town of Boonville is getting in on the popularity of cruise-ins. Every third Monday the town is inviting local classic car enthusiasts to come out to downtown Boonville to show off their vehicles. The next cruise-in will be Monday from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
“All types of cars, trucks, and bikes are welcome to line the streets of the downtown area,” said Town Administrator Sarah Harris. “If you do not have a vehicle to show off, no problem. It’s fun to come out and look, visit with the owners, and learn the history of the vehicles.”
There also will be food trucks available so visitors can enjoy a meal while viewing the vehicles.
“Mouth-watering food from Herrera Vineyards and Papa John’s food trucks, which will be located in the First Citizens Bank parking lot. Cindy Shore, Sanders Ridge Winery, Restaurant, and Farm, will be there too with her organic farmers market,” Harris said.
Other local businesses also are getting in on the action.
“Mid-Town Gas n Grill and the Boonville Restaurant will offer food specials during the event. BB’s Boutique and Boonville Flower and Decor will be open late for shoppers,” said Harris.
The cruise-in also will serve as a fundraiser for a future park in downtown Boonville. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event to benefit that cause.
“Come on out and enjoy music, food and fun for the entire family,” said Harris.
