WORTHINGTON -- Classic cars, food and live music will take over 10th Street on Tuesday during the annual Cruisin’ Downtown Worthington event.

The Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce Retail Committee has been holding Cruisin’ Downtown Worthington since 2011. All community members are invited to bring along their automobiles. People have showcased classic cars, tractors, fire trucks and motorcycles in previous years.

There is no fee to bring a vehicle, but it is recommended to call the Chamber to reserve a spot. Tenth Street, along with some nearby side streets, will close at 2 p.m. Tuesday for the occasion.
