Did you know that the region’s top car show takes place every week, May through October, right here in Cuyahoga Falls?
The Riverfront Cruise In held from 5 to 9 p.m. Mondays at Falls River Square has been named the region’s “#1 Cruise-In” the past five years by Cruisin' Times Magazine, a monthly publication that covers Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and parts of West Virginia.
The classic car show is sponsored by Don Sitts Auto Sales in Cuyahoga Falls and hosted by the City of Cuyahoga Falls and the Falls Riverfront Square District, said Jennifer Syx, the city’s deputy director of development.
“There’s been a car show in Cuyahoga Falls for many years,” Syx said. “Don Sitts took it over (in 2005) and, to his credit, it’s grown from a small show with 40 cars to well over 200 cars every week.”
The Riverfront Cruise In has its own website that features the season’s calendar, photos and updates about each weekly show, as well as a spot for attendees to post testimonials.
This cruise in season started with a bang.
“What a way to start off the first night at Riverfront. With a record crowd of over 300 cars, we still fit every cruiser in. The weather was perfect and the food vendors were there in full capacity. The 50/50 raffle of over $700 in the jackpot was won by a first-time attendee,” it was reported on the site.
A Falls resident named Mandy posted a testimonial saying, “Best Car Show around!!! The Mall is always filled to the brim with amazing cars. It really is the Best of the Best!!!!!”
“It’s a really cool event,” she said. “They have theme nights, they have DJs that announce events and play music and there are raffle prizes. It’s free and open to public – it’s a great family event.”
