WORTHINGTON — It has only been matter of weeks since Crazy Days, but Tenth Street will come to life again Tuesday evening with the second installment of Cruisin’ Downtown Worthington.
“Years ago, prior to King Turkey Day, they used to have a car show, but they stopped doing that,” said Darlene Macklin, Worthington Chamber of Commerce’s executive director.
As part of an idea to revive the old tradition, promote the Downtown area and celebrate back to school season, Cruisin’ Downtown Worthington made its debut last year.
Organized by the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce Retail Committee, attractions will include classic cars, antique tractors and fire trucks.
The display will stretch from Second Avenue to Fifth Avenue.
“One will be a ’68 GMC pickup and one will be a ’39 Chevy sedan,” said Terry Eggers, from Mick’s Repair, about the cars Mick’s Repair will be displaying.
Community members are advised to not have their bicycles and strollers among the cars.
“We want to be careful with the classic cars and tractors,” Macklin added.
Additionally, downtown businesses will be participating in back to school sales and food specials will be available from restaurants on Tenth Street.
This year’s new addition is DJ Barry Roberts, who will be providing music from the Government Center.
Cruisin’ Downtown Worthington will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday and will be held in collaboration with the Downtown Farmer’s Market which will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
