Inaugural Downtown Elgin Cruise Night Motors Into Festival Park on Thursday, August 4

On Thursday, August 4 beginning at 7PM, the Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin invites you to crank your engines and motor on down to Festival Park in downtown Elgin for a triple feature of fast-moving family fun, food and a flick.

In conjunction with the City of Elgin's Free Family Movie Night in the Park featuring the hit Disney movie Cars, the DNA rolls out its first ever Downtown Elgin Cruise Night – Presented by Ken Stepps State Farm.

The Cruise Night will showcase classic, cool cars from all eras and styles parked along the walkways in Festival Park. Redmon's Towing is scheduled to bring their antique tow truck out to the park and other unique vehicles will also be on hand.

That night the DNA will also be selling popcorn, soft drinks and other treats to all Cruise Night and Movie Night patrons as well as promoting all things downtown Elgin. Concession proceeds benefit the DNA's downtown revitalization efforts.

For kids and families, the City of Elgin will have a Cars-themed bounce house and a photo booth, where kids can have photos taken with lifelike Cars characters created by ACME Design.

Car enthusiasts who own vehicles they would like to show off at Thursday's Cruise Night or at the final Cruise Night of 2011 scheduled for August 25, are encouraged to contact DNA Promotions Coordinator Jason Pawlowski at 847-488-1456 or e-mail jpawlowski@elginil.org.
