Do you remember cruising Lansdale when you were younger? Spending a ridiculous amount of time (and gas) driving up and down Main & Broad St., again and again. Be it with your first car  (that ran most of the time), your pride and joy street rod (shade tree mechanic be proud) or your parents car (that you begged to borrow), you were out with friends or meeting new ones. 
Cruise
Come out and relive this old enjoyable past time of cruising like “American Graffiti” along Main and Broad Streets. Back in the day Lansdale was a cruising hotspot and for our 6th year we will once again be taking a trip back in time but for a good cause.

Unlike other ‘Cruise Nights’ you’ve heard or 
seen, this one is not just about the cars, not just another car show in a parking lot. This cruise is also about the people. Whether you are walking, riding or driving, doesn’t matter (though cool cars are cool).

The cruise route is still there! It may have been buried in our minds, lost with a later generation and forgotten with changed names and renovations, but it is still there, yearning to be revisited.

Franks’s Pizza (old Nino’s Pizzeria) W. Main St. to The Lansdale Pavilion (A&P, I Got it at Gary’s, Drug Emporium) Broad St.

Cruise Route:   West on W. Main St. , Right on N. Mitchell Ave, Left on Mill St., Right into parking lot, Loop around back on Mill St., Right on N. Mitchell, Left on W. Main St., Right on S. Broad St., Left into The Lansdale Pavilion parking lot, Loop back around to go north on S. Broad St., Left on W. Main St…..repeat.

Basic Rules:
  • The Lansdale Reunion Cruise is open to all cars (though cool cars are cooler).
  • Traffic Laws and Town Ordinances will be enforced.
  • The car must be road-worthy and registered,
  • All passengers should be wearing seatbelts.
  • No tire burn outs!!!
  • Absolutely No alcohol on the streets.
  • No exhaust flames or hydraulics allowed.

More cruise night information: Registration starts at 4:30pm, At 5:00pm we will start line up of the cars along Madison Street starting at Main St. (behind the ribbon) and then Madison Parking Lot.  6:00pm is the start of the "Prelude to the Cruise" car show. The cars will be on display until the ribbon cutting. At 7:30 (30 minutes before the ribbon cutting) there will be a drivers meeting in Railroad Plaza.

Then at 8:00pm the Mayor, Little Miss Lansdale and representatives from Manna on Main St. will cut the ribbon to officially open the Lansdale Cruise. After the ribbon is cut the cars will parade out onto Main St. (right hand turn) and begin the cruise. Once onto Main St. drivers have the option of following the cruise map which replicates much of the cruise route that was used in Lansdale for several decades. They can make a full lap, 2 laps, 3 laps or stop anywhere along the way.  There is a parking lot at each end of the cruise route.  

At 10:00pm we will make our way back to Railroad Plaza to choose our raffle winners and hand out our various special awards.

Registration is just $10 donation with at least 3 canned goods.
If you do not bring canned goods we will sell you some for an additional $5 for 3 cans.
(though a bag full is much better)

The Cub Scouts will also be collecting food items from spectators for Manna on Main Street.
Please consider bringing a few can good items with you to donate.

Proceeds go to Manna on Main Street.
