Calling all car enthusiasts! On December 2nd, 2023 (Rain date December 3rd) join the The Twilight Cruisers for the 23rd Annual Toys for Kids Cruise-In 2023. The event will take place at Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing State Rd 484 Belleview (Exit 341 on 1-75) and benefit Interfaith & Sheriffs Youth Ranch.

No charge for spectators or parking, Donations will be accepted.

Pre-Registration $15.00 or Day of show $20, or a toy of equal value. The event will feature  40 Peoples choice Trophies, 10 Judged Trophies Best of Show Trophy, Don Garlits choice, over $1,500 worth of giveaways, Dash Plaques, Ladies Gift bag, and a giant Christmas stocking. Last year’s 50/50 was over $500.00 to the winner!

Special appearances by: The Ghostbusters car, Hot wheels Corvette, Lightning McQueen, The Sheriffs helicopter, and special sheriff vehicles like the mobile jail.

For most of the entries, the cars are more like works of art than typical everyday drivers. In a trip down memory lane, classic rides from bygone eras in American history will all accounted for. From the wide-bodied and chrome-clad Chevrolet Bel Airs of the 1950s, to the big engine Mustang and Camaro muscle cars of the 1970s, with a few modern masterpieces sprinkled in.

This year they offer Swap Meet Spaces for $25.

Self-described as a “not for profit car club formed to promote and protect the classic autos of yesterday”, the Twilight Cruisers frequently hold cruise-ins around the area.
