Blasting into Greenville’s past

GREENVILLE — Greenville will be making a blast into the past on Labor Day weekend during the Fourth Annual “Wesley Street Cruise Night.”

The three day event is expected to attract hundreds of people for a car show, a concert and the namesake cruise along both Wesley and Lee streets.

Events are scheduled to begin on the evening of Friday, August 30, with a 6 p.m. visit to the former Greenville High School, now Greenville Middle School, at 3611 Texas Street for a tour and photos. The cruise begins at 7 p.m. and ends with the “Sonic Boom”, as the cruisers invade the Sonic Drive-In.

The focus shifts to Market Square, 2210 Lee Street, on Saturday, August 31. A swap meet starts at 9 a.m., with registration for the car and bike show, with more than 20 classes featured, starting at 12:30 p.m. The car and bike show itself runs from 2 until 4 p.m., followed by live music from Tribute to CCR and Then and Again until 7 p.m., when a cruise parade down Lee and Wesley Streets is set to begin.

A “Hot Rod Church” service/“Cruisin’ On The Heavenly Highway” rally, featuring Harvey McFadden as Elvis, is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Sunday, September 1 in the pavillion at Graham Park, followed by a picnic to wrap up the activities.

Information about all of the events included under the Fourth Annual Wesley Street Cruise Night is available on the group’s web site at wesleystreetcruisers.wix.com/wesleystreetcruisers.
