MT. VERNON, IL (KFVS) - Tri-Five Chevy and rat Rod owners are invited to the Rend Lake college MarketPlace on Friday evening for the monthly Cruise Night, hosted by the Kingsmen Auto Club of Mt. Vernon, Illinois.
The July 3 Cruise Night will begin at 6 p.m. in the east parking lot, across from the RLC Golf Outlet, at the MarketPlace in Mt. Vernon.
Classic and show cars of all kinds are welcome to attend; however, one participating Tri-Five Chevy and one Rat Rod will be drawn to win a Feature Car plaque.
The event is free to the public and ends at 9; there will be prizes and a 50/50 drawing during the evening, and attendees can take advantage of free refreshments and live music.
"We want everyone to bring the kids, bring everybody, and enjoy the cars," said Jim Hutchison, Kingsmen Auto Club president. "It doesn't cost a dime to see the variety of collectable, muscle, and antique cars that will be there. Anyone can bring any type of classic or show car to the Cruise Night, there's no entry fee.
Both participants and attendees can also make the most of several sale opportunities at the MarketPlace during the event.
