You’ve likely heard some of the hubbub surrounding what’s happening around one of Summer’s most popular events – Cruisin’ the Gut. We received some information from the event organizer which lays out what happened to the event and what might be happening next.
Having spent *years* of my youth cruising those very same streets – ah, the old ’71 Camaro, shown sans engine during a rebuild – oh, to have that one back… sigh :) – this event was a real joy to watch unfold each year. I’m really disappointed it came to this, and I am hopeful that the folks at the City see the benefit of extending the same financial support to this event as they do for the arts, music, theater and other important events happening in the downtown core.
