Here are the car events for the first week and weekend of July. Even though there is no Champaign Cruisers Firecracker or Union County Fairground shows this year, there are still plenty of events scheduled for July 4th.

Last week there were several last-minute cancellations and location changes. I try to update the list as soon as I know about any changes, however, it's always a good idea to contact the organizers to confirm the event is still on before heading out.

News and Notes:

The second week of the Der Dutchman Cruise-In turned out to be a big one. More than 200 cars showed up for what turned out to be a beautiful Thursday evening weather-wise. Starting this week, I believe the restaurant is going to start selling ice cream and soft drinks at the cruise-in.

The inaugural Grace Chapel Wednesday Night Cruise-in attracted about 20 cars. Just like the Hilton Cruise-In last year, it was after 6 pm when the majority of cars arrived. Chad Schirtziner is working to get a food truck on the premises each week.

Two big events, Cruise the Ville and Vettes, Rods, And Classics at Creekside, were canceled last week. Fortunately, there were twice as many new events anounced. To see the most complete list of future Central Ohio shows and cruise-in, logon to the Save the Dates for 2020 page.

BREAKING NEWS: Dan "Boots" Longenette and Pepsi's Auto Smarts Radio have released their 2020 Cruise and Ride schedule. I will be adding these events to the Save the Dates page.
