‘Cruising to the Show’
Cars draws thousands to Eisenhower Park
Ron Manfredi/Herald
East Meadow resident Nick Lenoci polished his 1955 Chevy Bel Aire at the third annual Cruise to the Show in Eisenhower Park last weekend.

Convertibles galore and an abundance of original wheels, including a coffin-shaped vehicle, were on display at the third annual car show and concert held at Eisenhower Park last weekend.

Attracting young and older onlookers, families and friends emerged in their slickest rides or strolled around to ogle Chevys painted the color of the rainbow and copious additional models that ranged from the early to late 1900s.

In addition to the parade down Hempstead Turnpike, which temporarily closed the well-traversed lanes, numerous show-goers participated in Hooters wing and Mamma Teresa’s pizza-eating contests, while others nestled on the grass at Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre and enjoyed tunes by Platinum recording artist Eddie Money. The performance was free, but attendees were asked to bring canned food to support Island Harvest.
