March 15th to November 1st 04:30 PM to 09:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Bank Street, Downtown Decatur, AL
Contact: b.a. king



The city has decided to add a cruise in to their 3rd Friday event in down town Decatur. They hope to pattern it after the Gadsden Cruise In. For the time being it will be held on Bank Street just down from the old bank building. When all road work is done on 2nd Ave close to Princess Theater, it may move up there. It will start about 4:30 -5:00 p.m.-ish and go to about 9:00 p.m. Bring the wives as there are antique shops, Civil War museum, Tenn Valley Pecan Co, and more. Restaurants are A Little Slim, Simp Mcgee's, Tim Buck 2 deli shop. They are working on getting more food vendors in for the cruise. If you know of food vendors have them contact me.

The old state bank parking area should be open for photo ops if you so desire. We hope to be able to park in the very middle of the street like Gadsden, but must leave a fire lane. Work with us as this was done on very short notice. Ya'll come. Hope I covered it all.

Very cool! I'm surprised the Merc didn't get some attention as well considering it is a Euro classic.

I think we also turned on Canal St. One thing that was confusing/annoying was that if you're a late comer, then you're not getting in thanks to the barrels. We ended up parking at the end, past the Mustangs. If I'm off work in time, we'll have to ride down with yall next time.

Interesting. So from I gather (and ba correct me if I'm wrong), this event is modeled after the monthly cruise-in in Gadsden. And there, the enthusiasts just move the barrels themselves and put them back. If there were still spots available inside, then that's what I believe you have to do.

yep just get out and move barrels. if i'm there i'll move them for you. the barrels are there to TRY,AND I SAID TRY to keep out.well how do i put this,uh non-cruise in type vehicles. who want to park close to restraunts. most of the locals look at barrels as just a suggestion tho. go right past them!!! but in the future feel free to get out move barrel . next time i hope to have up some pennat streamers. anybody know where i can score some??

and thanks to all who came out.about 80 cars not bad for first of the year. next month we have 2 bands playing,one on upper bank street the other on banks street green(down the hill) this band will be the u.s.army band. now don't think the just a stogie old bunch playing classical music.we had this group last year and they rocked the house.young group who really know their music.also there will be a guy set up selling burgers hot dogs and mixed drinks.look for the signs more later.

Thank you for the clarification.

At one point, I think you posted about needing a food vendor. I met Moe's Southwest Grill's event coordinator Adrian Mosley today, and she's highly interested in being a food vendor there. You can reach her at 256-880-0113, and I've got a cell and email too if you need them.

Sorry we didn't see you there. I finally got to meet with Samir today and got my Huntsville car scene stickers that I'll be putting on the car in the morning so it'll help identify us Fiat guys in the scene.

And past where we were I didn't realize there were more cars down that direction honestly until everyone starting dispersing. I hope as time goes on people will become more accustomed to that area. Like I said, I think we came in the wrong direction.. thankfully we had someone directing us and it worked out, but hopefully we didn't tick anyone off in the meantime. (We were about 30 minutes late)

No problem.

I also just saw this email:

"I am with the Morgan County Humane Society and we are looking for events where we can bring our food truck to help us raise money for our shelter. Are you still doing a cruise-in at 3rd Fridays in Decatur? I notice that you were looking for food vendors for that at some point. I'm not really too informed about the car show scene, but a friend said we might do well there. Please let me know if you might consider allowing us at any of your events.

Thanks.

Kimberly

She also sent phone and email contact info that I can email to you.
