We are so proud to have one of the greatest ongoing traditions in San Diego County in our city. Cruisin’ Grand brings thousands of visitors to Escondido every Friday night throughout the summer. This popular event is not only for classic car enthusiasts but for everyone to enjoy strolling along Grand Avenue, stopping in for a bite at one of our many restaurants and people-watching on those warm summer nights. Each Friday night, awards are given to the most impressive pre-1973, American-made cars. Theme nights include “Fire Truck Night”, “Nitro Night” and “AFX Night.” If you’ve never been there, don’t miss it this season!  And for those die-hard fans that are already polishing their classic cars, we look forward to seeing you again!
