SEPT. 25th, 6-9 p.m. -
Whether you have a classic car or a custom bike, or just like to look, this cruise night hosted by the Lake Garnett Cruisers is a "must see" event. The cruisers are hoping to fill a car trailer full of donated canned goods, box items (mac 'n cheese, etc.) and paper products to benefit the Garnett Area Ministerial Alliance Food Pantry (a/k/a... EMPTY Pantry!). Donations will be accepted by everyone, whether a "cruiser" or not. However, those bringing their classic or custom hotrods and motorcycles will be vying for some door prizes and some cash prizes, and a real cruise will take place to area nursing homes and around Lake Garnett. See the Lake Garnett Cruisers website, http://www.lakegarnettcruisers.com/ for specifics.
The cruise night is a kick-off event to Cornstock 2009. One of the fastest growing and most original festivals in Eastern Kansas, Cornstock includes a fantastic outdoor concert on the cheap (3 bands for only $25; $20 in advance). This year's featured entertainment is Diamond Rio. Did you know Diamond Rio is releasing a new album and a book about the band? Due out Tuesday, September 22nd, just days before Cornstock (September 26).
