As a revival to bygone days of cruising up and down Main Street between the 1950s and 1970s, Lansdale Cruise Night was something to do when there was nothing to do.

The event is organized by residents Bill Henning, Deb Henning, Tara McNally and Ray Liberto and falls under the umbrella of Discover Lansdale. All proceeds from the event will benefit 

The idea all began when the Facebook group "You Know You Grew Up in the Lansdale, PA Area If ..." started as a public forum to reminisce about days gone by. It is now 2,138 members strong.

Here's all you need to know for the Saturday night event:
