This years’ CruiseFest (major sponsor being the Fulton Avenue Association) promises to be the best one yet, with 500 classic and custom cars of every make, model and era, cruisin’ down the Avenue.
The cruise will take place on a one-mile loop of Fulton Avenue, bordered by Cottage Way on the south and Marconi Avenue on the north.
New this year, some one-of-a-kind vehicles have been added to the fun, including:
-The NutMobile, Planters Peanuts “shell on wheels” is making it’s way west and will be here for CruiseFest with a special appearance by Mr. Peanut himself, who will be handing out samples and coupons to the crowd, who will also be able to take pictures in Planter’s cutouts and will be invited to shout their love for Planters, registered by a decibel meter;
-The Oscar Meyer Weinermobile crew will have a bean bag toss and pass out weiner whistles, coupons and stickers;
-Sacramentan Richard Fehlman’s amazing Circus Calliope Wagon;
-Jim Welch’s Draconos Marshall Services—2 person, 4 wheel bike with a model T body and electrically propelled paddy wagon;
