[sg_popup id=1]Freeport, Illinois — In 1978 a local car club called The Freeport Street Machines received permission to host a ‘cruise’ through downtown Freeport, Illinois as a showcase for the hard work the group had put into their cars.
Today, Freeport Cruise Night is the premier show car cruise event in northern Illinois.
Upwards of 1000 show vehicles and something over 10,000 spectators gather in downtown Freeport, Illinois to marvel, reminisce and talk classic cars and hot rods. This year it is said that estimates of 15,000 graced the streets of Downtown Freeport for this historic annual event.
We took a walk through Cruise Night 2017. Here are some photos from the event.
