    After the July 20th show at Township Park in Edwardsville, IL, everyone is invited to cruise-in with the Lakers Car Club at Culver's ! Just 6 miles straight south down IL-157 from the hotel.

    Cruise runs from 5-8, but we're hoping to organize a group to head over after 4:00 and park together. The lot, street, and grass all fill up quick with a huge assortment of cars.

    Address: 100 United Dr, Collinsville, IL 62234
