History of the "Cruise Into Fall" Car Show

The originating sponsor of the first Cruise Into Fall Car Show was the Renaissance/Main Street Program and was designed to bring activity to the downtown business district and to showcase historic downtown Glasgow.  With the Renaissance/Main Street Program, the opportunity was there to make subtle but important changes to the down, like new landscaping, a sidewalk clock and façade improvements to the building.  The time had come to bring people back downtown to enjoy the changes and to do business with downtown merchants. While there were other festivals and events being held there was nothing that took advantage of the beauty of the downtown in the fall. 

The first Cruise Into Fall Car Show was held on the second Saturday in October in 2001.  County Judge Executive Davie Greer was the Chairwoman for the first car show and also chaired the event for the next two years. Approximately ____ cars were at the first show to be viewed by a large number of spectators who strolled the streets of downtown Glasgow.

The car show was free to the exhibitors who brought the cars and that is still true about all the other shows.  Most exhibitors make donations as they come thru the registration.  Those generous donations and the recent addition of Event and Trophy Sponsors have helped us keep improving the car show.  In 2007 were able to install an outdoor sound system that really brought a more festive atmosphere to the annual event..  The numbers of cars exhibited has steadily grown over the  eight previous years.  In 2008 we had over 370 cars registered and the variety was awesome.

The Renaissance/Main Street Committee has been so fortunate to have the help of many volunteers who have been dedicated to making the Cruise Into Fall Car Show one of the best in the South Central Kentucky area.  And we thank you, the car owners who continue to support the show by their attendance and who have brought many of their friends with them the next year.  It’s a fund day, the people are friendly and we give lots of awards to the best and most favorite cars in the show
