“You're gonna fly away, glad your goin' my way; I love it when we're cruising together; the music is played for love, cruising is made for love; I love it when we're cruising together.” (Smokey Robinson – Cruisin’) That’s right, the first Saturday of June is almost here, and that means the return of one of the coolest local events around the wannaB, Cruisin’ On Dearborn! If you’re into classic cars, then bring the family down to historic Dearborn street and admire some of the best looking antique autos around!
Where and When
Cruisin’ On Dearborn takes place on the first Saturday of every month and has quickly become one of our guests’ favorite events around the resort. Happening just a ten-minute drive from the wannaB, Cruisin’ On Dearborn is the perfect Saturday activity to bring the whole family to. Share your love of these jalopies with your kids, over a day-long event where hundreds of cars and thousands of car lovers will converge – all to appreciate the fine craftsmanship of a bygone era.
Lots To Do
The cars aren’t the only thing to appreciate while you find yourself on Dearborn St. though. Dearborn happens to house some of our favorite restaurants and eateries, so if you need to stop for a bite, you won’t come up short for choices. Stop into the Mango Bistro for a cup of coffee, head by Comadre’s for some delicious Mexican cuisine, or finish off your night at Englewoods on Dearborn for a quick drink and some pub fare. There’s truly no shortage of delicious food options for the family to enjoy when they’re spending a day on Dearborn. But how about some entertainment?
Live music is just the thing to inject some excitement into any event, and Cruisin’ On Dearborn has this covered. Not only are there nearly endless cars for you to salivate over, the event also hosts live performances inspired by classic tunes of the ‘50s and ‘60s – perfect to cruise to! Additionally, the event often has contests and activities going on throughout the day where you can win prizes! Not bad for an event that’s totally free. That’s right, there’s no admission costs, so there’s nothing stopping you from getting out for an afternoon of fun, food, and fast cars!
We absolutely love Cruisin’ On Dearborn, it’s just too bad it only comes around once a month. The event will be live again next Saturday, June 2nd, so if you’ll be staying with us, make sure you don’t miss out! If not, don’t worry, the Cruisin’ On Dearborn Car Show recurs the first Saturday of every month, so you’ll more than likely get an opportunity to catch one.
