Lyndon Institute to Hold Cruise Into Fall Auto Cruise-In
August 18th, 2019
Passing through downtown Lyndonville on just about any sunny spring, summer, or fall day, you would find it hard to not see a handful of classic, modified, and/or souped-up cars, trucks, or motorcycles on the road or parked on the side of the street. At times it seems as if they are around every street corner and you would swear that a big car show must have been in town. Seeing an opportunity to bring the community together, Lyndon Institute (LI) is looking to bring those vehicles to their campus for the first-ever 2019 Cruise Into Fall auto cruise-in.
An auto or car cruise-in differs from a traditional car show in that awards and honors are not presented. It is more about bringing like-minded motorists together to talk shop, share stories, tips and tricks, and show off their automobiles. LI has had a long history of car enthusiasts among its students and staff, and if you have ever been to LI’s Prom Parade, you would see that storied tradition as you watched prom attendees arriving in a large variety of hot rods and classic automobiles. By holding a cruise-in on their campus, it seemed like a logical progression to bring the greater community into the fold.
One doesn’t need to put a vehicle on display in order to attend the event which will be open to the public with free admission. There will be other attractions at the family-friendly event that include a bouncy house, food trucks, musical entertainment provided by a DJ, and a varsity football game. Anyone putting a vehicle on display--automobiles of any make, model, and year are welcome--they will receive two free tickets to the 1:00 p.m. LI vs. Fair Haven Varsity Football game.
The 2019 Cruise Into Fall auto cruise-in will be held on the Mathewson (Matty) Green on the lower Lyndon Institute campus on Saturday, September 7th from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with cars being on display from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. More information about Lyndon Institute can be found at www.lyndoninstitute.org and information about the cruise-in can be followed in the events sections of the LI Facebook page at www.facebook.com/lyndoninstitute.
