ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA – (October 4, 2013) – Fresh off of the hugely popular and highly successful inaugural car show in Ontario, the Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion® is pleased to announce the dates for the 2014 Vintage Metal Road Show™. Once again car enthusiasts, hot rodders, musicians, vendors and sponsors will park along historic tree-lined Euclid Avenue during the third weekend of September, with dates set for September 19-21, 2014.
“We are extremely excited to begin the planning and execution stages for the 2014 Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion. We had such a positive outpouring of support from classic car owners, fans and the community of Ontario, California that there was no doubt we’d do it again,” stated Michael Krouse, president of the nonprofit Route 66 Reunion and President & CEO of the Greater Ontario Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Each year our plan is to make the Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion bigger and better than the previous year. This year with 800 vintage automobiles, and more than 139,000 people in attendance during the three-day cruise, which brought in $15.3 million in positive economic impact to city businesses, we have a strong foundation to build upon.”
The large crowds that flocked to Ontario for the 2013 cruise were treated to a first class car event that was widely applauded by all in attendance. Many of the families and car clubs enjoyed the grassy median along Euclid Avenue where they set-up lawn chairs to watch a return to yesteryear as many of the classic hot rods cruised by.
Krouse has a message for the car owners, entertainers, vendors and sponsors for next year’s event, “It’s important to register early or get onboard as a sponsor or vendor as word is spreading around the globe about the Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion and you wouldn’t want to miss out on one of the truly great car events in the Western United States.”
This fabulous three-day classic car rally features block after block of cars and displays that draw immense crowds of fans from Southern California, the Southwest, Midwest and the South Eastern United States, as well as around the world.
