The Cache Valley Cruise-In has been a standard in Logan since 1982.
“It’s always fun to look at cars and maybe reminisce about cars you might have owned,” said Lynn Zollinger, a member of the Cache Valley Cruising Association.
For 34 years, the organization has hosted the Cache Valley Cruise-In on the weekend closest to the Fourth of July, and this year it will be held June 30-July 2 at the Cache County Fairgrounds. It's one of many car shows that will take place across the state over Fourth of July weekend in addition to the patriotic celebrations, concerts and fireworks.
Here is a list of other family friendly events scheduled throughout the state, listed by county. Note: This is not an all-inclusive list and photos may not directly correspond to the event on each slide.
The Cache Valley Cruise-In has increased in popularity over the years, and more than 30,000 people now attend the annual event, according to cachevalleycruisein.net, which notes that part of the draw to the Cruise-In is the giveaway car. This year, the giveaway car is a 1970 Camaro RS/SS.
Zollinger said the car, a Super Sport model, Rally Sport option with a V8 engine and a split front bumper, is a genuine muscle car. The winner of the car will also receive a three-ring binder that contains work orders and pictures of the car as it has gone through improvements and other work throughout the years.
The Cruise-In is designed to be attractive to families, according to Zollinger. Tickets are $5 for adults and $1 for children under 18 and are good for all three days. All adults who purchase a ticket are automatically entered to win the giveaway car. The Main Street Cruising Parade is free and will take place July 2 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
“It’s fun to come and look at (the cars) and kind of experience some of the nostalgia there,” Zollinger said.
That nostalgia and tradition is a culture that Blaine Thompson said he hopes is never lost.
Thompson, owner of Rockin Hotrod Productions, has always had an interest in cars, which grew into a business. He recalled his start 14 years ago when he was filling in for someone at a car show. The owner liked his show and hired him on the spot. He and his wife, Jill, now travel throughout Utah putting on shows that include vendors, awards and music of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s.
This will be their seventh year participating in the Riverton City Town Days Car Show, which will take place July 2 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at Riverton City Hall and is free to the public.
Thompson said almost 200 locally owned cars will be shown, including an original Ford Model A, ’32 Camaros, Chevelles, Mustangs and Chargers.
“We have everything from an original, old classic to a hot rod and everything in between,” he said.
Thompson said he hopes people will bring their families to enjoy the event.
“That’s just one thing that we really thrive on making sure happens is that families know they can bring their children there and it is going to be a good time,” Thompson said. “It just takes you back in time for a little while and shows you how the vehicles were back then.”
