The annual Chattanooga Cruise In draws thousands of classic car enthusiasts to the city for an afternoon of shop talk and viewing.

More than 1,500 collector vehicles and up to 10,000 attendees are expected to be at the event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The event is free to the public and will take place rain or shine.

Vehicles will be parked in the streets surrounding the Coker Tire headquarters at 1317 Chestnut St. on the Southside. Guests are encouraged to visit Corky Coker's museum throughout the day, which includes even more vintage cars, trucks, motorcycles, engines and memorabilia.

Spectator parking will be limited to the south Finley Stadium parking lot and streets surrounding the event. 

Guests can also expect much more than classic cars during the event. As is the case each year, the Chattanooga Cruise In will feature local food vendors—Bitler Bistro, Shuford's Smoke House—and local restaurants T-Bone's and Southside Saloon & Bistro will be open during the event.
