Tonight Holly Halloween car show 4 - 8
I participated in a small cruise Friday evening in Byron Center area. We drove through a couple nursing home parking lots with the old folks sitting outside with signs thanking us. Even though the last half of us got lost, it was still a good time.Gilmore has reopened after the lock down. I went to the cruise night for a walk around last Wednesday night. Quite a few cars, maybe 200-250. Guy at the gate with the clicker said he was told to allow 300 cars and 500 people. Live music and the outdoor bar was open. Long line for ice cream so I skipped it. Some different cars came out. Always interesting to see what new iron shows up at the start of the new season. Muscle Car museum looks like it's still in the works but I gotta think their construction schedule must be delayed. They were closed for a while and some of their shows were cancelled due to COVID. I didn't check but Gilmore's Facebook page normally has pictures of their cruise nights.
if you're going to cruise at the Gilmore make sure you go early. They are limiting car count this year and you don't want to get there late and not get in. It's also a pretty early cruise. Cars are leaving by the time I get there. I usually try to get there by 6:30 - 7 because I don't get out of work very early. Pick a good weather night and the place will be busy. Cars come and go. I stick around until they start shutting it down. It's on the museum grounds inside the gates and the people there are working so they don't like to stay open late. It's not like it's a store parking lot.The gilmore museum is one of the best venues for a car show! I did not know they had a cruise night. It’s a bit far for me to go just for a cruise night but I may have to try to make the trip sometime. This is going to be a really different car season.
