As area groups get ready for a busy Saturday of alternate Apple n' Pork activities, a pair of Clinton car dealerships are planning one final car cruise.
Anderson Ford and Baum Chevrolet-Buick in Clinton have hosted a trio of classic car cruises this summer and Saturday will be their final drive of the season. Marketing Director at Baum Chevrolet, Janell Baum-Thomas tells Regional Radio News they are looking forward to one final socially distanced event on a day when they would normally be hosting their big car show for Apple n' Pork weekend.
According to Baum-Thomas, cars that register on Saturday at Anderson Ford will be eligible for prizes for various car categories.
Also that night, Baum Chevrolet Buick will be giving away gift cards to local establishments to help the local economy.
Anyone that wants to participate in the car cruise just needs to show up to Anderson Ford that evening and follow the other vehicles through the route, which begins at Anderson Ford, 1001 Rt. 10 West. It will travel up to Mr. Lincoln’s Square and back down to the dealership. To close the loop, participants will travel back to the Square, repeating the route as many times as they like.
Additionally, for those that want to enjoy the cars passing along the community streets are recommended to watch from Illini Drive or on the Clinton Square.
The car cruise is from 6 pm to 8 pm on Saturday. Get more information by vising the Baum Chevrolet Buick Facebook page.
