Cruisin’ Reunion Route 66

CR66 2014Ontario, CA – Well, another successful year of Cruisin’ Reunion Route 66 is in the books and it could not have gone smoother. This was the second year of the event  held in old town Ontario California and on all levels the event surpassed last year’s great results.  There were more cars, more people, more vendors, more big name sponsors, LA TV news crews, the Goodyear blimp, network news helicopters, and the inaugural opening of the brand spanking new outdoor Ontario Town Center concert stage…lots of name brand bands like Little River Band and Otis Day were on hand (although the later has absolutely lost all semblance of a voice…it sounded like gravel in a trash can). There were cars on display that were seen last year as well as those not seen at this event before…crowd pleasers seemed to be a Dodge Challenger 4×4 (ouch!), a real military Humvee, a fire dept ladder truck from ground zero NY 911 where the Ontario FD crew were raising funds for MSD charities, and an Acadian Canso (find it the pictures by clicking link below). Autozone giveaways, Ford new car displays (you could register to win a new Mustang), free Lucas Oil tool box stickers, two beer gardens, and a smattering of local food vendors rounded out this year’s event. Weather was a PERFECT low-80’s daytime and high-60’s nights…just like the old days of late summer cruising E Street San Bernardino back in the 70’s. Looking forward to the 3rd annual event next year – mark your calendars for the 3rd week in September and plan to attend; you won’t regret it!

    According to the Ontario Ca.Convention and Visitors Bureau, over 200,000 spectators over the three day event and more than 1000 cars. A 40 percent increase over last year. Success!

    It is so awesome to see the attendance for participant cars and for spectators verifiably increased over last year…next year should be even bigger!
