Car Show vs. Cruise-in……….what’s the difference?

I get this question all the time, so I decided to fill you in and then you will know what to expect. Now, you pro's will already know this one, so feel free to add your $0.02.

A cruise-in is a more laid back type of event where you just drive your ride in and park, there is no fee to park and show your ride, there are no trophies given, and it is typically held on a Friday night or Saturday afternoon/night.

Most of the time a cruise-in is held near or in the parking lot of a restaurant or business, that way the women can shop or the family can eat while they are there enjoying the rides. Cruise-in’s typically only last 3-4 hours.
