1st Wednesday at Providence

Post by EvilZ » Wed Apr 25, 2012 12:48 pm

So I've been working with Samir for the past few weeks to get First Wednesday back to what it used to be. Below is copied from HCS:

This is a meet. This is a cruise-in. This is just a good time hanging out and talking with your friends and fellow enthusiasts while perusing the cars that have come out. If you remember the old Dairy Queen Meet/Cruise-in in Madison from years past, this event is a reboot of that. It is a family-friendly environment with plenty to eat so bring your kids.

This event is for every enthusiast in the area, young or old, for any enthusiast vehicle new or old, fast or slow, on road or off, 2-wheeled or 4. There is no registration fee, no door prizes or anything like that. Just a good time with fellow enthusiasts.

This event is held in conjunction with the Village of Providence, who graciously permits enthusiast vehicles to park on their grassy park at the center of Providence, surface permitting. When the ground may not be able to support the weight of vehicles, the parking spots adjacent to the park will be used. Parking notifications will be posted here on Huntsville Car Scene.com. This event is rain or shine and year round, just like DQ used to be.

The entrance for the grass field is behind the grass field. There is a small gravel road leading from the pavement. Follow the signs with arrows at the stop sign at Brickhouse.

Come out and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of Providence in your favorite ride. See you all there!

^I've also created a facebook page as well and I hope to see everyone out there. I expect this to be a pretty large event and hopefully will finally bring back what DQ used to be.

If you have any questions let me know!

Same here. I really came in on the tail end of it but it helped me meet a lot of people in the car scene when I was in college. I just hope this turns out to be similar.

It will be crowded. However there are several restaurants there so that should help with people wanting to eat.

Sounds like a nightmare with the patio party there.

I can see it going either way. At the end of the day, we have a place to park and hang out, if it's to crowded and you can't eat there then your just a few minutes away from several other things just like the old DQ.
