Today: Take a Kool Stroll Down a Polished Promenade

What: Downtown’s 12th Annual Downtown Park-n-Shine, part of Kool April Nights

When: TODAY, April 14, 8 a.m. Registration, 11 a.m. judging, 3 p.m. awards

Where: Market Street Promenade

Hot cars and a very cool backdrop is what downtown offers for the 12th Annual Downtown Park-n-Shine Thursday, April 14th. For the 3rd year the Park-n-Shine is hosted inside the Market Street Promenade.

Classic cars start lining up to get into the Promenade off the Butte Street entrance around 6:30 am. With free registration and a great backdrop to showcase a beautiful classic car, it is no wonder they arrive so early to secure one of the 126 spots available. By 10 a.m. the cars are parked, the sweet music of the 60s is humming through the promenade and the “people” cruising has begun.

If you have not been to downtown in a while, this is definitely the time to come down and see how amazing it has changed in just the last 5 years. Not only is the downtown Park-n-Shine visually appealing, you get to experience all the great businesses that have moved to downtown. The smells of wonderful foods lingering in the air will tease your senses as you try and make the tough decision of where you will eat lunch at one of the many downtown restaurants.

At 3 pm, all the Park-n-Shine participants will gather in front of the entrance of Need 2 Speed to find out who is taking away one of the coveted Downtown Park-n-Shine trophies. Downtown prides itself on offering the best service and products, making no exception on the Park-n-Shine trophies. Categories for the Downtown Park-n-Shine are: Best Engine, Best Paint, Best Hot Rod, Best Interior, Best Rat Rod, Best Sports Car, Best Truck, Best Mopar, Best General Motors, Best Ford Motor Co., and People’s Choice.

The 12th Annual Downtown Park-n-Shine, Thursday, April 14th. 8 a.m. registration, 11 a.m. judging, 3 p.m. awards, and at 4 p.m. the event ends. For more information, please contact Julie DePrada at 246-7223.
