The first cruise took place in 2001 and featured 250 vehicles.

“It’s crazy for three days,” said Wayne Wood, president of the Peach City Beach Cruise, adding motorists can’t drive down certain streets due to the sheer amount of parked cars on show.

Asked what makes the Beach Cruise so popular, Wood said “I think people just like looking at cars. Old cars, new cars … people have always had a fascination with cars because they represent freedom and so many other things.”
