For over 37 years Woodland has hosted some of the premier automotive events in Northern California and has been an important fixture on our community calendar bringing hundreds of vehicles and spectators into town. This year we are doing something new and exciting by bringing back a more relaxed version of what started in 1979 as the original “Hot August Nights Cruise.”
2017 Program of Events:
Since the weather is cool and we want people to enjoy the show and the cruise we are not going to open the gates until 10:00am. From 10:00 until 1:00pm we will park the cars along Main Street. All cars must be parked no later than 1:00pm as we anticipate a large number of spectators. The show and judging will officially start at 1:00pm and continue until 4:00pm. From 4:00pm to 5:30 participants will have a chance to relax and enjoy the many things Downtown Woodland has to offer including a good selection of stores and restaurants.
At 5:30pm we will stage the cars who will be participating in the cruise. Only people registered for the static car show would be eligible to participate in the cruise. All participants must show proof of insurance to participate in the cruise. Each registered car will be given a sticker which would be required to be displayed during the cruise. The cruise will take place through the historic Downtown from West Street to 5th Street. The cruise would finish at 8:00pm and cars would either exit or park normally along the street for those who wish to remain and enjoy the Downtown.
In addition to the show there will be a many raffle prizes, a 50/50 drawing, and a fun poker walk. Show posters and t-shirts will be on sale. Additionally many downtown restaurants and businesses will be offering specials.
