and make way for a fresh and bright New Year.
Here’s wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Halloween, the All Hallows Evening, is here once again. You can haunt your friends and family on the night of Halloween with some scary Jack-o-Lanterns and gory Halloween decorations and foods. Please be safe and use caution when driving because our children are precious.
Our open house pumpkin carving workshop is the mess free way to get your Jack-o-lantern Ready for Halloween. We provide all the supplies as well as pre-hollowed fresh pumpkins so you can get right down to business. A Facebook contest will be held on Halloween to let the public vote on their favorite. The carver of the pumpkin with the most likes will receive a $20 gift certificate to any Downtown Somerville business of their choosing!
Go to our workshops page and sign up to reserve your seat.
Tools used: Chainsaw, machete, sickle, wooden stakes (lol).

What MAY BE THE LARGEST WEEKLY EVENT OF ITS KIND IN THE NATION!
Somerville’s Friday Night Cruise Nights has been a nationally-acclaimed classic car show for over 26 years, taking place every Friday evening rain or shine from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Now entering into it's 27th year, according to some, the origin of Somerville Cruise Nights goes as far back as the mid-1980s when the whole thing began with a service station owner in town. As the years passed, word spread throughout surrounding towns about the weekly gatherings in Somerville, and more classic car owners began to show up. One city block length of cars parked with hoods up gradually became two blocks, and then three. Visitors from neighboring towns became visitors from neighboring counties, and then became visitors from other states. The weekly gatherings grew in popularity to the point where the Borough of Somerville and the Downtown Somerville Alliance took over organizing the event in 2009.
Today, Somerville Friday Night Cruise Nights are one of, if not the, largest weekly events of its kind in the United States; and a cursory glance of license plates from Maryland, New York, Delaware, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania makes their point hard to argue. On any given Friday evening, you’ll find classic American, British, German, Italian, and even some Japanese makes and models.
Over 100 classic cars regularly line Main Street along with many car clubs making Downtown Somerville a regular stop creating a classic American Downtown experience for the whole family!
A big thanks to Cruiser Aficionado Pete Abbate and his article-we borrowed generously from his kind words about our event!
