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 bad at guessing numbers but probably around 70 cars. I may be way off and I have only been once.

The one which I covered was about 100+. My guess is that they've been holding steady around this number.

I believe the first one this season had the most attendance, but have stayed steady, filling the 3 or 4 blocks of downtown Bank Street.

I REALLY enjoy these Friday nights! But I have been moving, & have missed the last 2. I DO plan to be there Friday night; it's supposed to be VERY nice weather - clear, & cool. I will bring my old Pony Hoss ('63 Pontiac Catalina). He's anxious to get out of the stable! I hope we have 150 vehicles!

I'll make it a point to try and make it over. I'm assuming there's plenty of parking where you won't get blocked in? In my mind I kinda see this like the Athens square monthly cruise in, not like the actual show (where you would get blocked in if you parked on the actual square.

I have found the parking to be great. Even if you park in the middle of the street, people usually leave enough room for you to pull out & go if needed; & there are lanes on either side of the street left open (as people park along the cubs) to go in either direction if needed. Not like the big show in Athens, where you can't get out. At Decatur, people are coming & going in their cars all night.

Perfect. I was planning on just stopping by for a little while.

Given I have everything together for leaving Saturday, I may swing by REALLY quick and cover the cars that are there. I hate to have not covered it in some form yet, but I guess it is what it is.

You should swing by even if you can't cover it just to check it out. It's a pretty neat event with the backdrop of the downtown area.

I love seeing it out. And I'm sure everyone else does too. There isn't one time that I haven't seen someone studying it as they admire it.

What time is the game? Hopefully football won't be a conflict. We all know how that goes...

Sounds like a great way to spend a Friday night. Wish I could have been there!
