Cruising at Hot August Nights starts prompty every night at 7 PM. And already at 6:30 PM the streets are lined with people staking out their spots along the miles of route between Reno and Sparks, Nevada. Cruising is the best part of this show and what makes Hot August Nights such an enjoyable show to attend. They tell us that there will be over 800,000 watching the cruising here this week. Everybody comes from miles around to get photos and videos of the action.
The chemistry between the cruisers and the crowd is fun to watch. Cruising at Hot August Nights is enjoyable for the spectators as well as the cruisers. All you have to do is show up with your car and you are an instant celebrity. If your car or truck has a hot engine the crowd rewards you if you for revving it up. There are no burnouts allowed here. The “cruise control” is very well maintained.
Here’s how it looked like Thursday evening in the lense of our camera.
