Car cruise and show takes over downtown
Sacramento, CA The CAM Car Cruise and Show snaked through the streets and captivated downtown Sacramento Saturday evening.
Saturday evening, car enthusiats from all over Californina gathered at the California Automomobile Muesuem (CAM) to stage for a downtown cruise and auto show that would cover several streets.
If you were downtown Saturday evening after 5 P.M., you may have seen the very long line of vintage, classic and modern cars that snaked through the streets of downtown, from CAM all the way up to 28th and J. Streets were closed from J over to L, beginning at 22nd and over to 25th. Bands of different genres were playing on each street as folks enjoyed the wide variety of cars on display. "Purgatory" played on 22nd Street, "Mere Mortals" played on the main stage in the K/L alley off of 23rd, "The Resurrection Men" played on 24th Street, "Red Rover" was on K between 24th and 25th and "Road Test" was at 25th and L.
Swing Dancers from "Midtown Stomp" were strutt’en their stuff in the main stage area in the K/L alley, Folsom Cheer Elite were doing their routines and human pyramids in several locations and the all new Mountain Lions Dance Squad was on location.
KCRA3’s Walt Gray was on hand to emcee and announce the many awards that were given.
This was the second cruise and show event that CAM has hosted downtown and both have been a raving success. The event is simply a feast for the eyes to any automobile enthusiast. With cars ranging from pre World War II era to present day the event was a menagerie of automotive splendor.
CAM hosts and sponsors many events throughout the year. One specifiecally coming up is the Vettes for Vets car show, co-hosted by "Just For Corvettes" car club, which will take place November 7th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot next to CAM.
