Cruise to the Show Parade

Mangano Announces Nassau County Executive's First Annual "Cruise To The Show" Parade And Car Show
Reminds Interested Participants to Register Online

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano reminds residents that the first annual “Cruise to the Show” parade and car show will be held on Sunday, August 15, 2010.* Those interested in participating can register online at

Featured at the event will be a restored 1909 Alco-6 Racer that is believed to have been the winner of the historic 1909 and 1910 Vanderbilt Cup races held on the Long Island Motor Parkway. This “Black Beast” is one of only 12 Alco Racers that are known to exist, out of the 1,100 built between 1908 and 1913, and the priceless car made a return to Long Island when it was purchased by Howard Kroplick in December 2008. It had previously spent 15 years in France.

Beginning at the Nassau County Supreme Courthouse in Mineola, at 9:00AM, the "Cruise to the Show" will continue along Stewart Avenue in Garden City before ending in Eisenhower Park. More than 500 vehicles of all makes, models and years will follow the parade route, and spectators are encouraged to watch them drive by on Stewart Avenue – the ‘best seat in the house’.

Following the parade, the County will host a car show featuring live music, refreshments, vendors, and of course, some great-looking classic cars.

“As a car enthusiast, I am very excited to be hosting this great event,” said County Executive Mangano. “If you have a car that you want to show off, or if you just want to enjoy the classic, fast, and unique cars, I invite you to come and spend a beautiful summer day at Eisenhower Park.”

“Cruise to the Show” sponsors include HUB Garage, Automat Customization and Restoration, and Obar Auto Parts. For more information, including registration and how to become a vendor or sponsor, please visit or call (516) 573-3488.

*Rain Date is August 22, 2010
