Rockville Cruise In-Street Dance set

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

MainStreet Rockville will combine the Cruise In-Street Dance with its Motorcycle, Scooter and Bike Show this year.

The event will take place June 7, from 6-10 p.m.

As in the past, the event will be staged on the historic Rockville square, utilizing adjacent parking spaces and the courthouse lawn as needed.

This year marks the 17th year for the Cruise In, which has offered hours of entertainment for young and old. Cars will enter from the southeast corner of the square, at the corner of High and Jefferson streets. Motorcycles, Scooters and bikes will be staged on the very south side of High Street and will occupy the parking lot adjacent to the Sentinel as needed.

Dancing to the oldies 50s and 60s tunes will be provided by a D.J. Registration begins at 4 p.m. and dancing starts at 6 p.m., immediately after the playing of the National Anthem.

Registration for each individual entry is $5. The 50-50 drawing will take place at 9 p.m. and dancing will continue until 10 p.m.

This year, Dash Plaques will be provided to the first 125 cars to enter the Cruise In. People's Choice awards will be given to the vehicle and motorcycle, scooter or bike garnering the most votes from participants. Food vendors will also be on hand for those in attendance and restaurants on the square will be open as well. MainStreet will again offer their glow-in-the-dark necklaces.

This is the 11th year for the Motorcycle, Scooter and Bike Show and some entries in the motorcycle class previously were Gold Wing, Harley Davidson, Indian, Suzuki, BMW and Victory. Bikes previously entered include Schwinn, Western Flyer and John Deere and scooters highlighted in the past were Cushman, Doodle bugs, All State, Salisbury and Agrillia.

As an extra attraction, Parke County, Inc., will have the Old Parke County Jail on the square open for tours during the evening.
