The return of the Cruisin’ Reunion: Ontario

Here’s to 10 years of celebrating automotive comradery on Route 66
Jalyn Brooks
Motorheads and casuals can appreciate a classic, slammed white 1964 Chevy Impala with a red leather interior.

From Chicago to Los Angeles, the famous Route 66 has remained a symbol of community and connection; a road artery that remains strong and vibrant across the country.

The Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion pit stopped at its home of historic Downtown Ontario, CA, to celebrate their 10th anniversary from September 15-16.

From Mustang to Regal and Cadillac to Chevrolet, this annual car show showcased a plethora of classic cars with the streets filled with car enthusiasts.

The free event included cars cruising down Euclid Avenue, live performances and DJs, street vendors galore, rides and more. The starting location of the cruise started on Euclid Avenue running from B Street to I Street on both sides. Car clubs like Southern Stilo, Ontario Car Club and Old Town Bombs SGV showed out to represent their crews and cities.
