October 22, 2009 (El Cajon)--The public is invited to the annual Cajon Classic Cruise Halloween Car Show, Costume Contest & Downtown “Trunk or Treat” event on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm in Downtown El Cajon. Admission and parking are free. Main Street will be closed to traffic in order to accommodate the cars and spectators.
Downtown businesses will host a “Trick or Treat” and car owners will host a “Trunk or Treat,” offering candy and treats from the trunks of their parked vehicles. Treat bags will be provided by the El Cajon CDC, so stop by the CDC booth to pick yours up before trunk or treating. Businesses and cars will be decorated in a Halloween theme, and everyone is encouraged to come in costume.
Other activities will include both adult and children’s costume contest, and a Best Dressed Car contest. That's right, dress your car up in Halloween décor or any décor of your choice, and compete for the best dressed car!
Presented by the El Cajon Community Development Corporation, the annual Halloween event attracts several hundred classic, custom and hot rod cars, in addition to thousands of spectators. The free event is centered on East Main Street at Prescott Promenade, just east of intersection of Main & Magnolia in the heart of Downtown El Cajon. Spreading out over several blocks, spectators stroll El Cajon’s booming Historic Downtown District while enjoying the cars, the action, restaurants, street vendors, food, DJs, and live entertainment presented amid a vibrant small town atmosphere.
