Summer is coming to an end, but it wouldn’t be complete without the final Hot Summer Nights of the season this week in Danville.
Classic cars and hot rods will start rolling into place at 2 p.m. Thursday, August 15 with the event starting at 4 p.m.
Wild and fun events are in store as shown on the Hot Summer Nights website. Tank, the 100-pound tortoise will be hanging out in the shade and the Hot Summer Night crew will be celebrating the event’s 19th year as well as honoring the 60th year of the Chevrolet Corvette.
The street party is known to combines classic cars and camaraderie to celebrate the summer evening.
Muscle cars, hot rods, and vintage rides line the streets, while bands play music from the ‘50s and ‘60s.
There’s a wide selection of food, drink, and souvenir booths throughout the venue, or you could off in one of the downtown shops or restaurants.
The event runs 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., and event goers might make it in the Town’s Facebook Hot Summer Night photo album.
