Frist Friday Cruise-In
The Lower Dexter Improvement Association created First Friday Cruise-Ins at the summer’s start, and they have been a huge success with interest and crowds growing each month. Past featured car clubs have included the Capital City Corvette Club, Gump Jeeps, Mustangs & Model A’s and Truck Night. Some events featured pedal-car races and free haircuts by The Chop Shop and River Region Golden Shears. Local restaurants on the block, Momma Goldberg’s, Frios Pops, Cuco’s Mexican Café and Island Delight, stay open for those looking to grab a bite to eat.
“A cruise-in is simply a gathering of car enthusiasts who either bring their own car or just enjoy being around the culture,” says Golson Foshee, president of the Lower Dexter Improvement Association. “Our goal is to cultivate attractive, family-friendly events that builds community - we think this does just that.”
The event is free to the public, but if you have an interest in displaying your car, apply at www.lowerdexter.org. Be sure to follow Lower Dexter on Facebook and Instagram for more updates.
