The 2011 car cruise season finally kicks off in Historic Downtown Parkville
Last week it snowed around here, so it would have been easy to be apprehensive about the weather for this event. Those fears were unfounded, however, because it couldn't have been any nicer.
You can tell people were suffering from cabin fever, because there was a very large selection of hot rods, classics, and muscle cars in the English Landing parking area. Burgers and hot dogs were grillin', the D.J. was spinnin', and everyone was having a good time.
And second, KISS cover band "Almost KISS" was performing across the street. They were pretty entertaining. They had all the KISS favorites down, they jammed pretty hard, and "Almost Gene" interacted with the crowd. There were several people there in real KISS and Almost KISS T-shirts, so I think the groupies knew they were coming.
Needless to say, since it was the first cruise of the year for me, I got carried away with the car pictures. There are no less than 146 of them in the slideshow below.
The next Parkville Cruise takes place on Saturday, May 7, 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.
