On Saturday, August 6th, 2011, Sacramento came alive with the sights and sounds of hundreds of unique cars from all eras and manufacturers as they celebrated an American summertime tradition of cruising.
The 3rd Annual CAM Car Cruise, hosted by the California Automobile Museum (CAM), was a fun-filled day for the whole family as we cruised through the streets of Sacramento and along Fulton Avenue (Cruise Route Map) where we concluded with a huge car show on Fulton between El Camino and Marconi. Attendees enjoyed the local fares of Fulton Avenue merchants, with beer gardens, live bands, vendors and more!
Paul Robins, FOX40 Morning Anchor, was our Grand Marshal & Emcee.
Thank you to all who participated in the Car Cruise. It was a huge success and we are looking forward to next year!
