Pepsi and Auto Smarts Radio have announced their Cruise and Ride schedule for 2019.
Just want to make everyone aware thatI've been adding events to the Save The Dates Part 2 page as I come across them. Please feel free to check that page often for future events to mark on your calendar.
The first weekend of events is two weeks away. As promised, here is the 2019 Save the Dates Part Two. Those events with an asterisk * after their location have been added to the list since part one.
A few things to point out:
The 2019 schedule for the Auto Smarts Radio Cruise and Ride series is being finalized. I'm told it should be out very soon. UPDATE: The Schedule is finally out. Click Here to view.
Jack Maxton's Friday Cruisin' Flyer for 2019 has not been made public at the time of this posting. Last year it arrived in my mail towards the end of April. I was told last fall that all the bands were booked for 2019 so I expect to see the flyer soon.
It looks like the Arthritis Foundation will only be sponsoring two shows this year -- the big Dublin Show at the end of June and the downtown Delaware show in July. I've seen no mention of an August show at the Honda dealership in Marysville. Rumor has it the dealership has changed owners and that may explain why the show dropped off this year's schedule. If you have any information about why this show is or is not happening, please post it in the comment, section. Editors Note: See the comment from Jeffrey Brashars on the status of this show
This is by no means a complete list of events for 2019. The events listed are ones that I have been able to confirm either through emails sent to me or through information that's already posted to the internet. There are a lot of organizations that won't "officially" announce their event until later in the season. See point number five for the most up-to-date listing of events in the area.
The weekly Upcoming Events postings will start back up the first week in April. Login to this site every Tuesday or Wednesday for a list of events happening around Central Ohio for the upcoming week. Rube's Cruisin' News (614-274-6008) is another excellent source for weekly event information.
Thought I'd get a jump on the 2019 car show season by posting a list of shows I've received information about or have been announced for this coming year. This should give everyone a chance to start planning for this season's events with some "Save the Dates" to put on your calendar.
I plan to update the list with a Part Two sometime in mid-March.
Without further ado, here's Part One in chronological order:
The Mid Ohio Cruisers will host the first car show of 2019 this Saturday, January 19.
Their annual Snowball Cruise will take place at the Burger King Restaurant located at 1044 Delaware Avenue (Rt 36), Marysville, Ohio from 2-4 PM.
If this year's event is anything like past years, there will be door prizes, a 50/50 raffle, and awards for the "Favorite" three vehicles.
The weather forecast for Saturday doesn't look very promising right now, but we all know Ohio weather can change on a dime. If nothing else, come out and hangout with your friends for a couple hours. I plan to be there.
