El Paseo Cruise Night
Cruise Night – First Fridays, November to April
Founded in 2001 by Jerry and Judy Martin, this monthly gathering for automotive enthusiasts often draws hundreds of cars for a cruise down the palm-studded boulevard. If you aren’t participating in the drive, you ought to reserve a streetside patio table at your favorite restaurant to see the vintage motorcade in action.
Cars meet up at 2 p.m. on the first Friday of the month, on the upper level of The Gardens on El Paseo parking garage. At 4:30 p.m., they parade down El Paseo.
