What If It Rains?

It never rains during a cruise-in, right?  Drive-In Fridays are highly planned events with many moving parts (besides the cars!) that make these events a success such as musicians, food/beverage vendors, private collector displays, etc. We will post on THIS WEB PAGE at least 24 hours before the event time the local weather update and our plans for that month's Drive-In Friday event.  You might want to bookmark this page for reference. 

If you pre-purchase Drive-In Friday tickets or pre-register your car for the cruise-in, we will be in contact with you the following week about refunding your ticket price or offer you options for participation at future Drive-In Fridays or other Ruthmere events.  We appreciate your support!

What a Finale!

The 2017 Drive-In Friday finale was a great cap to tremendous first season.  The Legal Immigrants delivered the energy.  Read about it here:
