Cruisin' Grand June 2011 Newsletter

Hello and thank you for your continued support of Cruisin' Grand ® and thanks for providing your email address. Our goal with this newsletter is to keep you informed on recent winners, upcoming events and cruise information. Of course none of this would be possible without the help of our outstanding Sponsors and we request that you patron the local shops and businesses who make our event possible. 
The Beginning of a Great Year on Grand
As you may have heard, Cruisin’ Grand is now Southern California’s most popular weekly cruise and has been mentioned as “the best in the West”.  Since the start of the 2011 season, we've seen some very nice muscle cars, street rods, and pre-war classics. This year people from all over the world have visited our web site and our cruise. In addition, car clubs have driven from out-of-state just to visit Escondido.  

Cruisin’ Grand is a Totally Free Event for Car Owners and Spectators
Come join us every Friday night from April through September as we cruise a 7 block long stretch of Grand Avenue through the middle of Escondido California. Cruisin’ Grand is open to all 73 and earlier American-made Classics, Customs, Vintage, Muscle, and Hot Rods. All classic cars are encouraged to park along Grand Avenue and the connecting cross streets and parking lots. Every week we have a host car club, lives bands, raffle prizes, and a hula-hoop contest for the kids.
Tell Your Friends – We Now Have More Street Parking
To help eliminate any parking problems, we have started to close Kalmia (one block East of Broadway) in addition to Broadway every week to provide more great parking locations. Please help us spread the word that we now have plenty of parking and are prepared to block off more streets to meet our parking needs.
Car Magazine Coverage
Most of you have known for years that Cruisin’ Grand is a great place to get your car noticed by the car magazines. This year, the entire staff of Car Craft visited Grand on opening night and we were featured on their June cover along with a nice mention in Street Rodder Magazine In a few months we will be featured in their rebirth of their Car Craft Cruising USA articles. We will keep you posted.
