Annual Main Cruise draws largest crowd in years

With classic cars and motorcycles lining what seemed like every free space of Memorial Park, the 26th annual Main Cruise Classic Car Show ‘n’ Shine Saturday, June 30 had something to offer every one.

Everywhere you turn at the Main Cruise Classic Car Show ‘n’ Shine was a new vehicle to explore.

This year, according to Lassen County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Patti Hagata, with 115 car entries this year, it was the largest Main Cruise event in eight years.

“The event was a huge success,” wrote Hagata in an email. “The Chamber has received a lot of positive feedback from both people who participated with a car entry and those who came to look at the cars. Everyone loves Memorial Park as the new car show location.”

While the exact number of Main Cruise attendees cannot be calculated, Hagata noted the park was full of spectators all day.
