Hot rods, music, craft beer and fun.  What more could you ask for a summer day in Downtown Loveland? Get revved up, The forge is putting on their second ‘Hot Cars Cool Nights’ event June 4, 2016!

The first Saturday of June in Downtown Loveland, get ready for some old-fashioned fun. It’s going to be the 2016 ‘Hot Cars Cool Nights’ with The Forge of Loveland. Hot rod and classic car enthusiasts will be bringing up to 300 vehicles to Loveland to show off. Everybody loves a great classic car show; last year’s ‘Hot Cars Cool Nights’ was pretty epic, as you can see in the above video, so this one should be fantastic.

This event, free to the public, starts at 10am down on and around 4th Street, with hundreds of classic cars! There’ll be live music throughout the day, including some great Rockabilly with ‘Atomic Drifters’.  A beer garden will be on hand with great local and national beers, and there’ll be lots of stuff for the kids to do too, including a coloring contest and the Children’s People's Choice Award (where they get to vote for THEIR favorite car!)

They’ll have a swap meet, with car parts, toys and classic-car themed printed items. With the whole event having a ‘travel back in time’ feel, the Pin-Up Contest is a lot of fun too. To see the women compete dressed up in ‘30s attire is pretty neat!

After the awards at 4pm, you can stick around downtown and grab dinner at one of the amazing restaurants; and afterward, bring it on back to the party for ‘Rock’n Downtown Loveland.’  This will be a ‘pub passport’ walking tour of establishments in Downtown; get your $5 passport filled out and you’ll get a great event t-shirt!

From Mike Detwiler, owner of The Forge who puts on the event:

“Putting a one-of-a-kind spin on a traditional car show, this homegrown, high-caliber event provides a place for car buffs and novices alike to join together and celebrate the vintage craftsmanship of classic cars and hot rods.”

The Forge will be holding a 'kickoff' party on Friday night June 3- hence 'NIGHTS'. Sounds like a super summer event for Loveland, get more details HERE!
