May 1st to December 31st 06:00 PM to 09:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Village of Providence, 7 Town Center Dr, Huntsville, AL 35806
Contact: Call/text Samir 615-512-5520 www.huntsvillecarscene.com



This is a meet. This is a cruise-in. This is just a good time hanging out and talking with your friends and fellow enthusiasts while perusing the cars that have come out. If you remember the old Dairy Queen Meet/Cruise-in in Madison from years past, this event is a reboot of that. It is a family-friendly environment with plenty to eat so bring your kids.

This event is for every enthusiast in the area, young or old, for any enthusiast vehicle new or old, fast or slow, on road or off, 2-wheeled or 4. There is no registration fee, no door prizes or anything like that. Just a good time with fellow enthusiasts.

From Huntsville Car Scene.com: http://www.huntsvillecarscene.com/sh...#ixzz3VbDS5tEK

UPDATED:

This event is in the spirit of the old Dairy Queen Cruise-In in Madison. If you loved that event, you'll love this one—same atmosphere, same vibe, same fun, and even more food choices.

Please enter from the front on the ramp over the sidewalk in front of The Brickhouse AFTER 5 PM (please allow the staff time to set up for the event). We will have some signs posted and cones placed to help aid with parking. Once the front lawn is full we will start parking on the rear lot. If that area fills up please find a parking spot around the grass.



The goal of this meet is to provide a fun family friendly environment. ALL CARS ARE WELCOME and parking will be FIRST COME FIRST SERVE however we do reserve the right to save a few spots for select cars.

Thanks again for everyones continued support and thanks a ton to everyone that helps make this event a success.

Like the old DQ event, this event is rain or shine and year round. See you there!

This event is held in conjunction with the Village of Providence, who graciously permits enthusiast vehicles to park on their grassy park at the center of Providence, surface permitting. When the ground may not be able to support the weight of vehicles, the parking spots adjacent to the park will be used. Parking notifications will be posted here on Huntsville Car Scene.com. This event is rain or shine and year round, just like DQ used to be.

The entrance for the grass field is behind the grass field. There is a small gravel road leading from the pavement. Follow the signs with arrows at the stop sign at Brickhouse. And if you're unsure, feel free to ask someone or contact me directly at 615-512-5520. I may not be able to answer calls immediately the day of the event due to volume, so feel free to call me in advance and I'll explain exactly where to go.

And just like DQ, there are discounts on food at the following restaurants:
  • Mellow Mushroom - 15%
  • Moe's Original BBQ - free banana pudding
  • Sweet Cici's - 20%
  • Tony's Little Italy - 10%
And if you want a meal for free, just stop by at Huntsville Car Scene supporter Liberty Mutual Insurance in Providence for a free quote on your auto and home insurance, and they'll send you a gift card for dinner at your restaurant of choice in Providence. Just have your proof of insurance and ID.

Come out and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of Providence in your favorite ride. See you all there!

Here's a great detailed 3D map of the parking areas by gorkoracing:

I will be there around 4:15 to keep from driving all the way home. Should I go ahead and park in the grass or wait?

It's totally your call, i might consider waiting just so we can get things rolling closer to 5 (i should be there right around 5). If you do decide to go ahead an park just leave the front corner open please.

When you say front corner are you talking about the same one you parked in last time? I will more than likely wait but just want to make sure.

Signs are in place, but if you park there you will be in charge of making sure non-enthusiasts don't park in the grass.

Have you checked the ground clearance from the drop off to the grass? Will the car be able to get back on the ramp from the grass? I forgot to check these things.

I'll be there right before 5pm to meet you guys and issue radios.

Talked to Moe's and they will give a free banana pudding to a plate order. I'm adding this to the listing.

One thing that I saw that may be a bit of an issue is that a crew is welding for the construction of the new building beside Sweet Cici's. They have blocked off the parking in front of that new building as well as the traffic flow from the gravel exit road as well as the normal 'loop' around the field. They started at 6:30am, so they should be gone by 7:30p, but I'm not sure if the parking will still be blocked. I know the gravel road will be clear. They were hoping to be done by 3pm, so I'm headed out there now.

Seems like everyone had a good time. I heard a lot of comments of 'this is even better than the old DQ'.

The only thing that I heard that was an issue was the service at Mellow Mushroom. I spoke with the manager and he said he underestimated how much business they'd get so they were understaffed. But that will be corrected by next month for the 4th of July. Sweet Cici's also loved having us and the new owners are really great people, so definitely stop in and check them out--especially with the sun beating down on us the way it was before it set behind the buildings.

We should be able to see Bridge Street's fireworks next month, depending on the topography and how high up they fire the fireworks. But Providence mentioned they may also do something special just for us so we don't miss the show. They have to check on a bunch of details, but it's great that they're considering us.

One thing I didn't like when I inspected the grass before I left at almost 11pm, is that I found some traces of garbage in the back lot. Please, please, please remember that we are guests here and we are expected to pick up after ourselves.

Oh, I forgot to add that this is an event that you will need to get to early. At 4:45 today there were 5 cars. By 5:30, the outer parking was full. By 6:15, the inner parking was over 50% full.

Samir. I think something we should look into for next month is a few trash cans. I went over to sweet cici's and got a drink and after finishing it i was like crap where am i suppose to put this. I'm sure we'll figure something out. Let me know if I need to run by after work and pick up.

Agreed, I was standing there talking with F Enzo and his wife at the end of the evening as we were about to leave and and he had a few cups in his hands and no place to throw them away. They walked over to brick house to use their trash cans.

I will probably be in town for this event in July and I am excited to hear about the firework developments!

I also agree with the trash thing and I think that will help tremendously.

It is so good to see this event maturing and you guys have done a great job with it! I will try to help promote it in any way I can

Good points. I had no idea the trash cans were that far away. I'll bring this up with Providence and see what they can do for us.

I got a reply on the trash cans and they've got some additional ones on order and will move the existing ones closer for the time being to help with the distance.

Just out of curiosity, who all has the 4th off?

No way I am missing this round. July 4th should pull a great crowd I would think. A lot of people are off work (me included! woohoo!) so hopefully they can get the cars ready and head out.

If anyone is going early, for whatever reason, I can meet and help set up or anything if it is needed.
