Good times cruising into Langley

You can almost hear the loud engines of hundreds of restored and custom cars parading down Fraser Highway.

The Langley Good Times Cruise-In is just around the corner, with the show taking over Downtown Langley on Saturday, Sept. 10.

After being “closed for the season” in 2010, president Riccardo Sestito and his Cruise-In committee are bringing back the event revamped and better than ever.

“I can’t wait for first thing in the morning when the radios go quiet and you can watch the cars rolling in,” Sestito said. “Then after that the mayhem starts up again.”

The 100,000 visitors who are expected can enjoy hundreds of hot rods, street rods and antique cars lining the streets of the Downtown Langley core, along with familiar Cruise-In food and entertainment and even some new attractions.

The Cascades Casino parking lot will once again be home to the motorcycle show and a brand new customs sideshow, with the best of the best custom built cars.

California burger chain In-N-Out Burgers will also be making their way back up to Canada, serving their famous “double-double” burgers.

But with a year off to reflect on Cruise-In’s past, some new changes are now being implemented.

The most significant is the cancellation of the Friday night cruise to the Twilight Drive-in Theatre in Aldergrove prior to the Saturday show. This is to try and quell dangerous street racing and burnouts that occurred in 2009.

“Friday night was always my favourite part,” Sestito said. “You have all the vendors setting up in the middle of the night, cars cruising around. It’s gone this year, but if things go well, you never know.”

And as always, the event is all about supporting local charities.

This year Cruise-In is supporting the Langley Stroke Recovery, Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association and the Langley Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.
