It was a Classic Adventure!

Raw horse power, shinny chrome and loud engines.... Now that's what we call a SWEET Saturday Night !

Streator's Roamer Cruise Night was the undisputed king of things to do this past weekend. ( September 4,2011).Over  20,000 people attended the annual event in downtown Streator from as far away as Texas.

Everything from the classic Ford Model T, to the crowd favorite , a flame-throwing exposition by the Voodoo Kings Car Club of Chicago.

The scene of classic cars, roaring motors and rockabilly bands is what draws a huge crowd annually to a tiny town in the midst of Starved Rock Country. It's a great date night, even if you bring the kids... they get so caught up in the cars and hubby and you can reminisce about your classic ride that you had way back when...

What's the draw? The cars, sure, but anyone can have a car show. In Streator, the real attraction is the cruising: getting those vintage vehicles out on the road, slowly going up and down the main streets, listening to classic music and restoring — if only for one night — some magic memories of the past.

 It's a stroll down memory lane for some, and for others it's a night of sheer envy. Awesome cars, and tricked out classics... every teenage boys dream... even the big kids, and when I say big kids I mean grown adult men... were droolin'.. " How cool is that"

It is the largest car show in downstate Illinois and it's here in the heart of Starved Rock Country.

If you missed it, you're in luck... because it's an annual event so mark you calendar now for a trip back in time!

"Life is an Adventure... Live it Here!"
