Wheels on Academy March 24, 2012

Downtown Cary will see a lot of traffic this weekend.

But that’s the point.

This Saturday, March 24, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Cary will host a classic car show on Academy Street, showcasing more than one hundred local and regional car owners’ prized possessions. “Wheels on Academy” is part of a new effort to bring more folks to Cary’s urban center. The event will be the first of many to take place downtown in the spring and summer months that lie ahead.

Art displays, food vendors and other attractions will also be lining the area streets.

This is a new event for the city so we’re hoping that a lot of people come out to take part in what looks to be a terrific annual tradition. Since a renewed effort was launched last year to¬†invigorate¬†Downtown Cary, the city has budgeted for a number of similar events.

“Wheels on Academy” will also have a kids section called “Touch the Truck,” displaying fire trucks, military vehicles and police cars for them to learn about and explore. There will also be live music featuring several local bands.

The event is free and open to everyone.
