Summer is here and we’re going cruising!
Daily Herald Cruise Nights are back for 2017! This season we’ll have four big events, all hosted at the Stratford Square Mall in Bloomingdale, IL. The dates will be the third Wednesday night of each summer month: June 21st, July 19th, August 16th, and September 20th from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. We’ve got brand new stuff planned for each night (including show exclusives!) along with returning favorites like live music (by the winners of Suburban Chicago’s Got Talent), the Matt Avery’s Pick Trophy and our Feature Cars Display. As always, we want to welcome any Original Owners (vehicles older than 15 years). We’re one of the few shows that calls attention to this special group of car owners. If you’re one, please contact ClassicRecollections@gmail.com for special instructions on how to be featured.
This event is free & open to the public.
Join us for a night of classic cars, car commentary, music & activities for kids.
For the latest up to the minute details on our show, stay tuned to our Facebook page. We’ll also have instructions in the event of inclement weather.
