MIDDLETOWN, CT – The 25th annual Middletown Cruise Party on Main Street, powered by NAPA, will return to Main Street on Wednesday, June 15, announced Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce President Maureen Westbrook and President of the Joe Santaniello event in a press release.
Cruise Night on Main Street brings hundreds of classic vehicles that line both sides of scenic Main Street, from Washington Street to the South Green from 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The event is “filled with American spirit, classic pre-1997 vehicles, vendors and live music from the band Nightshift!” according to the press release.
“The Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce and Motor Cruise Committee are extremely pleased to celebrate our 25th anniversary car show on Main Street, Middletown,” Santaniello said. “I personally believe Cruise Night on Main Street is about the people. Walking down Main Street and talking with someone you’ve never met while listening to their car’s ‘story’. The feeling you get when you’re part of it one person’s experience is unlike any other and that’s what makes this event so special.”
