Cruisin’ Grand Returns! SoCal Productions and the City of Escondido are excited to welcome Cruisin’ Grand Escondido back to our historic downtown. Cruisin’ Grand will kick off on Friday, May 6, from 4 – 9 p.m. and run every Friday night until September 30. All of your favorites will return including live music, DJs, kettle corn, and of course, the best display of pre-1974 hotrods in the country! Something a little different this year is the closure of additional streets to allow enough room for street-side dining and retail as well as plenty of space to display the vehicles and allow for spectators. Each Friday, Grand Avenue will be closed from Escondido Blvd. to Ivy St. and the side streets (Maple St., Broadway, Kalmia, and Juniper) from Second Ave. to Valley Parkway. This event is open to pre-1974 vintage, antique, hotrods, and muscle cars. Visit cruisingrand.net for additional details.
