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.

You were in the wrong area. The cars are on Bank Street. From Lee Street, where the Library, City Court and County Courthouse - keep going on Lee and when it curves to the right it becomes Bank Street. We should put exact directions on line for all next season that are not familar with downtown Decatur.

SORRY YOU HAD TROUBLE. I'VE TRIED TO MAKE SURE FOLKS KNEW WHERE IT WAS AT. ANY WAY 85-90 CARS,PROLLY THE BIGGEST FOOT CROWD I'VE HAD. HAD A GREAT BAND START AT 8;30 WISHED I HAD KNOWN THAT SO I COULD HAVE POSTED IT.THIS IS THE KIND OF FRUSTRATION I'VE HAD DEALING WITH THE FOLKS DOWN THERE. THEY REFUSE TO COMUNICATE WITH ME. BUT THATS OK. I'VE HAD A GREAT TIME DOING THIS,MET A LOT OF NEW FRIENDS, SEEN A LOT OF OLD ONES.I'VE HAVE BEEN ASKED IF I WOULD WORK WITH THEM NEXT YEAR,I'LL HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT. BUT THANKS TO EVERY BODY FOR THE SUPPORT THE LAST 2 YEARS. THE GROUND WORK IS THERE FOR IT TO BE A HUGE SUCCESS IF THE CITY WANTS IT TO BE. SEE YA ON THE ROAD

Congrats Bruce. Finally made it over to Decatur and it did not disapoint. Good looking cars. Music everywhere- jazz ensemble, a guy on his six string, a harp group and the bandstand. Good food- sidewalk dining. It was festive.
Sorry I didn't get to meet you- guess I spent too much time at the Bud sampling booth
Hope the city continues to carry the torch. Thanks again.

I hate that I've missed seeing this event grow into what we talked about with the city of Huntsville. You are THE MAN and made this a reality and a half for us enthusiasts.

Let me know the details of the new location, and if there's a new flyer, let's just start a new listing for the new location so no one gets confused.

I hope to see you soon!
