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.

No I-65 if you're coming on 565. That will take you to Birmingham. Only take I-65 South if you're coming from Athens or taking 72 all the way to Athens. I wouldn't recommend this route from Madison...

Crimson Pig BBQ was at Bugs and Brats a couple of years. I think I have their contact info somewhere, but you may be able to google it. Really, really great bbq.

I wouldn't risk riding on buckets. Just wait a month and bring it fully done. Better yet, bring the truck!

stage will up!! if its past say 4-4;30,your best bet is to go down to lee street,(3rd redlite) turn right and follow it to bank st. won't have to turn off of lee.

also i was wrong, oak street is where the traffic lite is on hwy 20,canal is the next street

Thank you for the update! So the best route will be coming over the bridge and then a right at Lee?

Had a lot of fun! We had 4 Fiats there we saw you pass by us JLowery. I need to start yelling at people when I recognize them, haha.

Ready for the parade tomorrow!

I wish I had seen this but we got there around 5. For future reference, yes, the best route was over the bridge and the third light. Take a right (Lee Street) and then continue down it. We took a right on Canal Street and kinda ended up on the wrong side to enter from but I think if you just stay on Lee it would have run into the cruise-in area.

Yeah, it was fun. Weather was pretty much perfect. We had to skip out a little early cause the girlfriend was craving pizza and we didn't want to walk to vittones so we drove to the other end of downtown. Next month we'll be a little more prepared and I plan to bring out the sonett. I think it'll fit in a little better than the Benz. And probably get more looks. But, for future reference, I will answer to both James, and JLowery28 haha. So don't hesitate to yell at me.
