[April 23, 2013]  ATLANTA -- Mark your calendar now and plan to attend the Atlanta Rt. 66 Cruise-In on Saturday, May 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Enjoy classic cars, vintage music, great food, a 50-50 drawing, hourly drawings and more -- all along an original alignment of the Mother Road itself in downtown Atlanta.

All area car club members and anyone with a great old car they want to display are invited to attend. Stop by the registration table to be included in the hourly drawings. The first 50 registrants will receive a free Atlanta Rt. 66 Cruise-In dash plaque.

While in town, visitors can step into the Palms Grill Café for a piece of blue-ribbon homemade pie, tour the J.H. Hawes Grain Elevator Museum, get their pictures taken with the Bunyon Giant, pick up souvenirs at the Gunnar Mast Trading Post or handcrafted items at the Arch Street Artisans shop, have a cheeseburger at Chubby's, visit the Atlanta Museum, enjoy a cold one at Phanny's or the Korner, then stroll around and enjoy the assembled cruise-in cars.

The Atlanta Rt. 66 Cruise-In is sponsored by the Atlanta Betterment Fund.

The next cruise-in will take place on Saturday, June 8, and will be Illinois' first Electric Vehicle Cruise-In. Visitors will definitely want to come to downtown Atlanta that day to see the variety of electric and electric hybrid cars that will be on hand.
