CRESCO - Remember those teenage days in the 1960s and 70s? Not a care in the world, or at least not as many as today. It was a simpler, nostalgic time for many.
Relive those teeny-bop days by coming to the American Graffiti Car Cruise on Saturday, July 11 at the Cresco Theatre, 2nd Ave. West. The street out front will be closed. The fun starts at 4 p.m. until the start of the movie “American Graffiti” at 7 p.m.
Street rods of all kinds are welcome, along with any other make or vintage for the car show. Tunes from the 1960s will be the entertainment.
Food can be purchased from the adjoining Atomic Pizza and Fat T’s sandwich shop.
Clothing from the 1960s is optional, but if you happen to have a plaid button-down shirt with slim blue jeans or a skirt, or come with a new “do” . . . the Beehive, New Pixi or Hippie Hair, it would be accepted!
Guys, you can participate as well with a Mop Top, Pompadour, Crew Cut or the Mullet and flare-legged pants with a sport shirts, with a wide lapel.
Take a step back in time this weekend and party like it’s 1962!
