The Classic Car Cruise-In is an early summer highlight for automobile enthusiasts of all generations.
North Hudson The fifth annual Classic Car Cruise-In and Dragway Reunion will be held May 5 at the North Hudson Firehouse located on Route 9. The event is sponsored by the North Hudson Volunteer Woman’s Auxiliary.
The day's activities will begin at 9 a.m. Coffee and breakfast snacks will be available in the morning as cars and motorcycles begin arriving.
The original event was held in 2008 as a presentation of the Schroon-North Hudson Historical Society on the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of the North Hudson Dragway and was a reunion of drivers and families who participated in the dragway. A few folks brought cars that were older vehicles from that era. Everyone attending had a fun day and wanted another get-together the next year. The Auxiliary agreed to sponsor the event and it became a cruise-in and dragway reunion in the ensuing years.
Anyone who has a dragway car or a classic car is invited to come and put their vehicle on display.
Motorcycles and trucks are also put on review.
Photos, documents or memorabilia from the dragway are welcome; there will be tables available for display. It is a very informal day. There are no admission fees and no prizes are given.
The Auxiliary does a 50/50 raffle and a car care bucket raffle that includes various items donated by area businesses. There is a restriction on vendor tables and fund-raising activities other than those by the Auxiliary. Hot dogs, michigans, chips and soda, water, as well as coffee and tea, will be served by Auxiliary members starting at 11 a.m. Donations are gratefully accepted.
