2015 will be our 15th Anniversary Season and we invite you to be a part of the Celebration!

Somernites Cruise started back in April of 2001 when 275 show cars and trucks cruised thru the entrance gate on a cool but, sunny 4th Saturday. We've been cruising ever since and this year we celebrate our 15th season! You're invited to be a part of the fun!
Sat. April 25th is Opening Day and all gates will open at 1:00pm. The Showcase Corral this month will feature a Orphans Round-Up! What exactly are "orphans"? Easy, orphans are classics, hot rods or customs who's manufacturer is no longer in business. Some examples are; Studebaker, Plymouth, Hudson, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Nash, etc.
Those manufacturers may have shuttered their windows and closed their doors long ago but, they will live again at Somernites Cruise on April 25th! Participation in the Orphans Showcase Corral is free and we welcome groups or car clubs to take part!
