We call it Hot Rod Heaven! Cruisin’ Grand™ Escondido Classic Car Show
Cruisin’ Grand is honored to be called one of the best cruises in the country. We try to keep it simple, and focus only on what works with our community history, i.e. 1973 and earlier American-made Classics, Customs, Vintage, Muscle, and Hot Rods cruising Grand Ave, just like they did 50-60- years ago, on a Friday night, hopefully shoulder-to-shoulder with a date!

Each week there are three live bands on Juniper, Kalmia, and Maple. In addition to our live DJ on N. Broadway, there are fun contests such as hoola hoops and “name that tune”, with prizes. The south side of Broadway is reserved for the car club of the night. Parking for other “period correct” (1974 and older American vehicles) is available on Grand Ave., N. Maple, N. Broadway, Kalmia (North and South), and N. Juniper.

The geologic history of San Diego was dominated by the interplay of oceanic and continental tectonic plates that collided over millions of years to form a volcanic and mountainous terrain that was subsequently eroded and uplifted to expose the landscape that we see today. This tour will examine a geologic cross-section of San Diego County beginning at the coast and extending to the highest elevations of the Peninsula Range. Visits will be made to the major rock types present including coastal sediments, volcanics, metamorphic intrusives, pegmatites, and metasedimentary rocks. The use of these rock types for stone tool and pottery production will be discussed.

The tour will meet at the parking lot of the Old Town Transit Center. This tour includes easy to moderate short-distance walking. Transportation and lunch will be provided. Cost: $60; Members and Students $45
