Classic Cars, Calle Food and Great Music at the Old School Cruise In, AUG. 21 at the Lincoln City Cultural Center
With the economic news, the ongoing restrictions and the general uncertainty in our community this summer, you’re entitled to feel a little nostalgic. At the Old School Cruise In, we absolutely insist upon it. The public is invited for an evening of outdoor fun, live music and classic rides at the Old School Cruise-In, set for 4-7 pm on Friday, Aug. 21, at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Admission for spectators is free.
With the Surf City Car, Truck and Bike Show on the following day (Aug. 22) at Chinook Winds Casino Resort, car owners are encouraged to “cruise in” early to enjoy this special outdoor party at the Cultural Center. All autos that are registered will receive event decals and will be eligible for prizes like “People’s Choice” and “Best Truck.”
Registration is just $10 per vehicle in advance (available online at www.lincolncityculturalcenter.org) or $15 at the gate. Forms are also available at the LCCC, open from 10 am to 4 pm Thursday-Sunday. For more information, call show manager Judy Hardy at 541-994-9994.
The evening’s entertainment will be provided by the band Sitka, a four-piece group that specializes in hits from the 1960s and 1970s, in a style they call “non-metro retro.” The band is made up of Marshall Edwards (guitar and vocals), Michael McDonald (bass, synth and vocals), Gray Eubank (vocals, guitar) and “Santa Claus” (percussion). Named after the big, old and deeply-rooted Sitka tree, the band plays “interpretations of popular classics topped with tasty jams.” The band’s influences include artists like Van Morrison, John Hiatt, Wilson Pickett, James McMurtry, The Wood Brothers and The Grateful Dead. They also thrive on the unexpected, throwing in the occasional Alice Cooper, Roger Miller or The Strawberry Alarm Clock.
Vendor Danny Ahumada will bring his inspired Mexican street food cart Calle, while LCCC volunteers will be running the beer garden, dispensing locally made craft brews from Rusty Truck Brewing.
Other food vendors and event volunteers are welcome to join the fun. To learn more call Judy at 541-994-9994. All proceeds from car show registration, concessions and donations will go toward children’s programs at the Cultural Center.
