This is the last day of May so here’s a post of some upcoming car events that happen in June. We have neither the space on the blog nor the time to list every event so these are some that we try to attend.
Friday, June 5 there is a cruise-in at the Dick-N-Sons Lumber Complex in Blue Grass, Ia. It runs 6-9pm and there is no entry fee.
Saturday, June 13, is the 4th Annual Blue Grass Fire Department Car Show in Blue Grass, Ia. It runs from 7 am to 3 pm at 120 E. Orphed St.
Saturday, June 13, is the Quad Cities Cruisers XXVII Car Show at Southpark Mall in Moline, Ill. It runs from 4-9:30pm. It will be held in the lot by J C Penny. For more information call their hotline at 563-355-0036.
Saturday, June 20 the Rollin the Oldies cruise-ins kick off with the first
of the year Northpark Mall cruise-in sponsored by the River Valley Classics car club. It’s held in the northeast corner of the mall lot behind Sears. It runs 6 pm to whenever everybody leaves. There is usually a $2 charge to get in and it’s well worth it.
Something a little later in the year will be the 2009 Lightning Fest on August 7th and 8th at the North RC2 Parking lot located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Hwy 136 and 20, Dyersville, Ia. This is just south of Hwy 20 on Hwy 136. There isn’t an entry fee and if you pre-register you’ll get a Johnny Lightning goody bag. They’ll have a large selection of Johnny Lightning cars, the car show, a charity auction, vendors tables, and special guest John Schneider star of “the Dukes of Hazzard” and “Smallville” among other TV shows.

On the north side of Dyersville is the Field of Dreams movie site; they also have the National Farm Toy Museum and other attractions. To see what’s around the town go here.
