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 thought I heard they were going to have food vendors on the streets/sidewalks, but I did not see any. Except for the shave ice, maybe.

The music / band may have been another problem this past Friday. Heard from several that got there early and parked by the stage (mistake! ) that when the band started, too loud and not good. Luckily, we were parked a few blocks away, but still heard the band. And at that point could not hear the other musicians.

The individual musicians that were playing and singing on the corners where good, but they should not have been directly across from each other. At times, would dround each other out. They should be placed at different ends of the block.

Yes, the city has a few issues to work out. Hope they do work it out and that this can become a success. Marsha

Hey, if you need any help with ideas and such, let me know. I'm actually a little surprised you didn't invite me to help you with this after we worked on Huntsville together.
