I’m sick of the snow, so I’m looking forward to the warmer weather. The longer days, brighter nights. Getting into your car and just GOING! No need to sit and scrape your windshield or warm up the engine. Or even shovel the driveway before you pull out. I cannot wait to kick back with the windows down, music up, friends riding shotgun, and the breeze blowing through my scalp (I’m bald). I cannot wait to Cruising The Ave.!

Thanks to a post on the Facebook group Yakima Car Shows and Rod Runs, we can now start planning accordingly to cruise the ave.! According to the flyer, Cruise the Ave nights will only be held two nights a month, going from June to September on Saturday nights. The flyer also has an additional bit of information that has made some folks upset.

Only Dates We Are Allowed To Cruise On Yakima Ave. Any Other Dates, Vehicles Will Be Impounded Or Ticketed.

RJ Littlefield speaks volumes with his comment:

I really hate that word ‘allowed’ what are we, a bunch of children?
