Somerville Cruise and Concerts 2011

From now through Labor Day Weekend Somerville is the place to be on Friday evenings. Somerville Cruise Nights and the Connie Tarantino Summer Concert Series are back!
Every Friday evening classic cars begin arriving in Somerville, some - trying to get the "best" parking spots - as early as 3 p.m. Both sides of Main Street, many of the side roads and an entire municipal lot are reserved for these fabulous cars.

There are seven specialty shows scheduled so far: Radio Motor Patrol on June 10th, Corvettes on June 17th, Novas on July 1, Cadillac La Salles on July 8th, Triumphs on July 22nd, Corvettes again on August 5th, and Z Cars on August 12th:

The owners are always glad to talk about their cars.

Walk over to the front lawn of the Somerset County Courthouse to enjoy the free Conni Tarantino concerts. Go here to see what's playing and remember these are outdoors and can be rained out:

There is a golden oldies DJ in front of the church on Main Street: say hello, request a tune, dance a few steps...

And it's all free!

A few hints:
Wear comfortable shoes. Allow enough time - a few hours. Take a camera. If you are going to spend time at the concert, take a chair or blanket. If you family dog is well-behaved take them along - although it can be hot and crowded.

There are at least 14 restaurants that offer outdoor dining (Not free!) on Cruise Nights:

Many of the Main Street businesses stay open during Cruise - stop in.
