Friday Cruise-In, Downtown Canton GA (On Going)

which gets rolling around 4:30 PM on June 6th. They block off downtown
Canton and have a street fair with lots of classic cars. Food, cars,
friends, free time to hang out and talk the talk.
First Friday was really great. But June 6 could be the biggest and
best ever, with the combination of show cars and beautiful bikes. Activities
Director Tom Di Nucci said, "I believe if the weather holds this will
be the best one ever! Great food, music and a fun family night out."
to the large crowd expected, we are asking anyone who would like to show
their vehicle to get there by 4:30 and to please stay til 9:00 PM. With
large groups of people walking the streets, it's the only way to keep
things safe. The Hoagie Shop will be open until 8:00 that evening, so
