The Steel Yard is happy to announce it’s 6th annual Cruise Night car show and fundraiser! The Steel Yard’s 2011 Cruise Night will bring over 70 custom and classic vehicles and over 150 people to the unique site in an evening of polished chrome, raffle prizes, studio tours, food sold by the famous Haven Brothers and greasy grooves spun by The Colonel.
Part of the Works in Progress 2011 fundraising event series, Cruise Night will take place on Friday, July 15th, from 5 pm to dark. Each year, the event has grown consistently bigger, bringing together more classic car and bike enthusiasts from throughout the region in an old school rendezvous and show off.
