Cascade Township, Michigan, Aug. 13, 2018 – Car fanatics are invited to get a jumpstart on Metro Cruise activities at Cascade Township’s ninth annual Cascade Metro Cruise Warm Up on Thursday, Aug. 23.
Taking place at the Thornapple Centre at Cascade Road and 28th Street SE, the event will welcome more than 300 hot rods, low riders, muscle cars, classic and antique cars. This free event, which will lead into the 28th Street Metro Cruise, will offer family-friendly entertainment, food trucks and music from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Children can enjoy a bounce house, face painting and balloon animals. Families will also have the opportunity to enjoy dinner or dessert from local food-truck favorites, such as Patty Matters, Daddy Pete’s BBQ, Moochie’s Ice Cream and Silver Star Cafe.
There will also be a DJ sharing pop and rock tunes from the 1960s through today.
“For the last nine years, this event has been well received in the community, and only continues to get better and better,” said Sandra Korhorn, director of economic development and Downtown Development Authority. “While car enthusiasts will certainly enjoy this event, there is a little of something for everyone – food, entertainment and fun. We’re looking forward to this being our best year yet.”
The Kent County Sherriff Department’s K9 Unit will host a dunk tank to raise money, giving attendees the chance to dunk Township Manager Ben Swayze and other local notables.
The Cascade Metro Cruise Warm Up leads into the 28th Street Metro Cruise, West Michigan’s premiere auto cruise and car show on Friday, Aug. 24 through Saturday, Aug. 25.
The Cascade Metro Cruise Warm Up is made possible by community sponsors such as the Cascade DDA, Cascade Community Foundation, ChoiceOne Bank, Forest Hills Business Association, Fowling Warehouse Grand Rapids and United Bank. For more information about the event, visit or call 616.949.1500.
