11th Annual Freedom Fest Cruise ‘n Show
What car sat in the driveway of your family “Home Sweet Home”? The American love for cars started back with the Ford Model T and continues to this day. Pack up the car and head out to see the sights, visit relatives or just go for a Sunday drive. What was your family car? Just maybe one like it will be included in this year’s Cruise ‘n Show in Morgan Hill on the 4th of July. Come to the parade early and watch the Cruise then come over to the Community Center parking lot to review the cars close up. Hopefully these cars will bring back memories of your “Home Sweet Home”.
Starting at 9:30 AM, just before the official 4th of July Parade begins, 100 plus classic, hot rod, muscle and original pre-1985 cars will “cruise” the parade route for your enjoyment. These cars are owned and driven by local people….maybe your neighbor! Watch for the different marquees from every era that are no longer in production. Packard, Studebaker, DeTamasso, MG, Plymouth, Edsel, Auburn, and Sunbeam are just a few to watch for.
Again this year, the cars will stop at the Centennial Community Center parking lot for the Car Show. So after viewing the parade come over and walk alongside the wide variety of cars on display. The cars will remain at this location until at least 2:30 PM so you can stop by and talk to the owners and admire their cars. Members of the host club, Valle Del Sur, Antique Automobile Club of America, will be present to answer questions about any classic cars.
Between 1:00 and 2:00 PM the sponsors of the Cruise ‘n Show will be making their choice of the cars they want to give an Award of Excellence. The awards will be presented at 2:00 PM with a Best of Show awarded by the votes of the sponsors.
If you have a pre-1985 car or truck that you would like to enter in this event you can download an entry form at www.mhfreedomfest.com in the Cruise ‘n Show section. Early registration is recommended as we are limited to 125 cars and will sell out. We may not have space on the day of the event. Lunch will be provided by Beach Hut Deli of Morgan Hill to all entrants.
So, get to your place on the parade route early for the Cruise and then come to the CCC to view the cars and help celebrate the 4th of July with the car owners.
