MEDINA – A new season of classic car shows will begin this Friday in Medina’s Canal Basin. The cruise-in series has been an annual tradition in Medina for more than 20 years.

The classic car shows go from 5:30 to 8 p.m. They will be in the basin every Friday until the end of August, except on June 28 when the show shifts to the Orleans County Marine Park in Carlton and on July 26 when the cars are on display at the Orleans County 4-H Fair in Knowlesville.

The season culminates with the Super Cruise on Aug. 28, when a section of Main Street is closed for the cars and there is lots of entertainment. Terry Buchwald, an Elvis Presley impersonator, usually performs on a stage in the downtown for that event.

On the regular cruise-ins on Friday evenings, DJ Hank Nevins will be playing music.

The car shows typically attract a few hundred people to the downtown.
