City to hold two free summer classic car cruises in Market Square parking lot

WOONSOCKET – Market Square Municipal Parking Lot will become an outdoor vintage vehicle showroom for each of the city’s final two Car Cruise events that will be held, free to the public on Mondays, July 22 and Aug. 19, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Rain dates will be held on the following Monday.

The roadway surrounding Market Square, a portion of upper Main Street and a portion of River Street where it intersects with South Main Street will be closed to traffic from 5 p.m. until after event participants clear from the event site. Similar to prior Car Cruise events, free parking is available within the city’s municipal lots.

“Market Square, Main Street and South Main Street will become pedestrian central this summer on July 22 and Aug. 19 with our very own emcee Rich George who as DJ Car Guy will play ’50s through ’80s music throughout both events. Also, a variety of great eats will be available from event food vendors who are eager to serve you from their food trucks,” noted Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt.
