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.

I'm trying to get together some of the FIAT club members for Friday. We'll see what everyone's plans are like. I may still try to make it by either way. We really enjoyed the atmosphere last time!

Hey everyone, it may be a little cool by Fri. night, but the rain is supposed to be finished by cruise-in time. Everybody put on an extra layer, or a coat & COME ON OUT! I am looking forward to it! My wife is planning to send her time inside the shops, anyway! :-)

ok barrels will be up with flags on them.if you come to one of these and want to go thru, please move barrel and go on thru,move it back please. most car folks know why the barrels are up.just don't want a lot of traffic in non enthusiast(?) type cars. park where you like. again 2 bands,one on top of the hill and one at the lower end. the one on lower end is u.s. army band, and i promise they rock. i like good ole rock and roll,and thats what they play. ya'll come.if you see me,(big guy look like santa) stop and give say hi and give suggestions. see ya friday.

I am wanting to try to attend (never been to third Friday). Don't get off in time to get there at 4:30. Would probably be more like 5 to 5:30. I live in Albertville.
Should there still be room for my car that late? I know 1st Friday in Gadsden usually fills up early on Broad Street. I know nobody can say how big the crowd will be, just don't know how big the parking area is. Looking for an educated guess? Thanks.

If all goes well I should be there. I'll need to put a few miles on the car to get everything broken in so this will be a good excuse.
