The Classic Car Cruise-In
Each Thursday evening of the summer, a festive, unique event takes place in the heart of Mansfield. From 5-8pm, people venture to the First Citizens parking lot for food, music, and of course, cars! The “Classic Car Cruise In” is a fun summer opportunity for the community to enjoy.
A group of like-minded car enthusiasts has created the event. How does it work? Car owners bring their prize rides, and fill the parking lot with a wide variety of vehicles from different time periods. There is no requirement for what town or county the cars come from, so the community of car owners represents a widespread region. The Cruise In gives these self-proclaimed motor heads a chance to get together and talk shop.
