What If It Rains?
It never rains during a cruise-in, right? Drive-In Fridays are highly planned events with many moving parts (besides the cars!) that make these events a success such as musicians, food/beverage vendors, private collector displays, etc. We will post on THIS WEB PAGE at least 24 hours before the event time the local weather update and our plans for that month's Drive-In Friday event. You might want to bookmark this page for reference.
Nearly 300 at July 28 DIF!
The crowd was "into it" with nearly 300 in attendance at the July 28th Drive-In Friday. The 1951 "Doc" Hudson Hornet, space age Jaguar XJ220 and a surprise Rolls Royce wowed the guests. The cruiser lot was packed to capacity with a great variety of local beauties, and served as a healthy announcement to all cruisers at future DIF events to register for your cruiser spot early!
Food vendors delighted the crowd serving up incredible food selections and our presenting sponsor the Center for Hospice Care auctioned off a one of a kind painting from their art therapy program.
Dos Hermanos Band kept the energy on point and are now a part of Ruthmere's storied history of musical artists who have entertained crowds at Elkhart's Jewel of Indiana!
