September 5, 2010 (Escondido) – For San Diego classic car enthusiasts of all ages, the place to see and be seen on Friday nights is Escondido’s Cruisin’ Grand, a pre-1973 car-themed festival that attracts participants from across San Diego. The events also feature live music and vintage entertainment from hula hoops to a “Twister” contest.
La Mesa’s classic car nights ended its season last week, while El Cajon wraps up its final classic car night Wednesday. Fortunately, Escondido’s free, family-friendly Cruisin’ Grand runs each Friday night through the end of September.
The event takes place on Grand Avenue in the central business district, starting at the 100 block of West Grand Avenue and continuing eastward on Grand, from 5 p.m to 9 p.m. Most weeks have a different focus within the pre-1973 theme.
“Fire Engines and Classic Cabs” will be the focus of the next Crusin’ Grand event on September 10.
