Lemont Legends Cruise Nights: June 8, 2022 Show Information
Antiques and Street Rods
It's Week Two of the Lemont Legends Cruise Nights Car Show Season! Thank you for supporting the Heritage Corridor Business Alliance and our member businesses by attending this week's show. The HCBA is the Chamber of Commerce that represents Lemont, Homer Glen, and the surrounding area.
REMEMBER - even if your car isn't an antique or street rod, you can still take part in the show! The "theme of the week" (Antiques and Street Rods) is for the "Cool Car of the Week" award.
"It's Supposed to Rain, Is the Event Still On?"
As of Wednesday, 6/8 at 1pm, the car show is still on. Barring any massive change in the forecast, we hope to see everyone tonight! If something does change, the best way to stay informed is to text CARSHOW to 877-728-1814 for updates. (Message and data rates may apply).
There are things that we consider in regards whether to hold the show (or even the first part of the show) or not.
- Public safety. We partner with Lemont's Police and Emergency Management Agency to monitor the weather and chance of thunder/lightning.
- The fact that car show cars and rain typically don't get along.
- Working with Lemont's Public Works Department to help set up for the show.
DJ Sponsor - Petersen's Main Inn
Petersen's Main Inn is a true part of Lemont History. In July of 1937, a tavern named "Honest Johns" opened in the village. The Inn changed ownership and management several times, and in 1989, Duane and Linda Petersen took over the establishment. Duane is actually one of the founders of the Lemont Legends Cruise Nights!

This week's theme is "Antiques and Street Rods." Make sure to be parked by 6:15pm to be eligible for this week's "Cool Car of the Week" Awards. And, thanks to our sponsor Gary Bronner of Haggerty, the winner will also take home a $100 LHG Gift Card, usable at a number of participating locations in Lemont, Homer Glen, and Lockport.

At 7:00pm, we are going to make a special announcement about how our annual "Best in Show" winners will be immortalized in Lemont Downtown. We will put more information out via our text line at 6:45pm ... as we're trying to keep a few secrets about where this will be.
