Some 86 classic cars displayed at Fourth Annual Car Show
With a live band playing music from the 60’s and 70’s and being surrounded by classic cars from many different eras, Dave Brewster of Mayfield Heights just couldn’t have been happier. Mayfield Heights hosted its Fourth Annual Car Show in the DeJohn Community Center parking lot with some 86 classic cars and Ricky & The Rockets covering classic rock hits on Thursday night.

Horsepower and hula hoops - it's back to the '50s in Mayfield Village's annual cruise
People may have gotten their kicks on Route 66, but SOM Center and Wilson Mills was the place to be Saturday evening. Cars, food, bands, people having fun... and more cars was the theme. The cruise-in was the brainchild of Jeff Shibley of Yours Truly and the mayor of Mayfield Village in 1989. Shibley says he remembers how they sat down in one of the booths and talked about an activity that would bring people to the community. The first cruise was born and has been a success ever since. This year the weather was perfect as the thousands of people revisited the 50's themed night. For more car fun nearby visit Willoughby's classic car cruise-in June 16 or make a trip with other Hillcrest aficionados to Good Guys in Columbus July 6-8th.
