Waterfront Car Cruise

Monday, July 29, 2024

4:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Note: Traditionally held on Tuesday of PVGP Race Week we are shifting the Waterfront Car Cruise to Monday for 2024.

This is a large car show open to anyone who wants to show off their ride -that includes old cars, new cars, trucks and motorbikes. The car show is a fantastic place for auto aficionados, hot rodders, gearheads, car crazy people as well as families to gather for a few hours and enjoy the cars, the people and the stories.

 

$10 Donation at the Entrance

There is no pre-registered entry. Please make your $10 donation as you enter the event. The PVGP is one of the area’s largest charity events and the Cruise is a fundraiser for our autism charity partners so we ask cruisers to make a $10 donation for our charities. A PVGP Race Program will be given for each donation.

Thank you to our Sponsors and Partners

Cruise Rules
We strive to provide a safe and friendly evening for all and we ask our visitors to abide by some simple rules:

  • There is NO saving spaces  – the event fills up almost every year so saving a spot for a friend is not permitted. If you want to park together we suggest you arrive together.
  • PVGP volunteers will direct you to your parking space
  • Pop-up canopies are not permitted in the cruise area
  • Alcoholic beverages or the consumption of such is strictly prohibited on the premises.
  • For Sale signs and solicitation of vehicles is not permitted.
  • NO solicitation of ANY kind except by approved vendors. Click here for information on becoming a vendor.
  • NO burnouts! We appreciate horsepower as much as anyone, but a crowded shopping center parking lot is not the safest place to do this. If you really want to lay down some rubber why not get a competition license and become a vintage racer!
  • Pets are permitted if on a leash and under the control of the owner. If in the opinion of the PVGP, a pet presents a danger or nuisance to others, the pet owner and pet will be asked to leave.
