As the leaves begin to fall the weekly Lowes Cruise continues at the Abingdon Lowes parking lot every Friday evening. Lowes Cruisers bring out the best in hot rods, street rods, classics, and more each week. The Lowes Cruisers will continue to meet into the Fall as weather permits. There are still a number of upcoming special events, as well as the weekly cruise.
As the Lowes Cruisers gear up for the end of the season a giant yard sale is planned for October 26th, with a rain date of the 27th. Billed as the "Real Man's Yard Sale" with hundreds of spaces to sell car parts and accessories. A car corral will also be set up to sell cars, trucks and cycles.
Earlier this month there were a number of return cruisers in their Super Sports, Mustangs, Vettes, antiques and even a custom Kenworth Semi-trailer truck with sleeper behind the cab, complete with large screen TV.
Music is provided by "Movies and Music by Tom" and depending on weather includes a 22 foot outdoor screen showing movies that feature classic and hot rods. As every Friday the live DJ raffles off $50 Lowes gift cards and keeps the crowd involved with announcements of upcoming shows. A voluntary $1 donation is asked for those entering to offset the cost of the gift cards and other gifts.
Join the gathering this Friday, weather permitting, from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 414 Constant Friendship Blvd, Abingdon, MD., beside Lowes store. Events will continue into November depending on weather and participation. So far the Cruisers have not disappointed the loyal crowds that show up to appreciate the rides.
