The corvettes are coming! The corvettes are coming! Old Falls Street is welcoming the Corvettes of Buffalo during the group's 10th annual caravan weekend, this Saturday, Aug. 16, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Dubbed the "Old Falls Street Cruise-In," the day-long event will feature approximately 200 corvettes and other classic and custom vehicles parked along all three blocks of Old Falls Street and within the downtown Niagara Falls area.
Other highlights include food, beverage and merchandise vending on Old Falls Street's middle block, as well as live music by Jamie Holka, from noon until 2 p.m., with headlining act The Boys of Summer, taking the stage from 3 to 7 p.m.
The "Old Falls Street Cruise-In" is free and open to the public. Anyone wishing to enter a classic or custom vehicle in the event may register on Saturday, on Old Falls Street, at $5 per car. Guests do not have to own a corvette to participate.
In addition to Saturday's festivities, the Corvettes Cub of Buffalo will host various members-only activities and a brunch on Sunday, Aug. 17, at The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls. One of those activities includes the caravan, which leaves the Seneca Niagara Casino front parking lot at 10:30 a.m. and proceeds through Niagara County with a tour of Goat Island.
The public is encouraged to be on the lookout for the caravan throughout the Niagara Region.
