Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- What happens if it rains on the day of the car show and cruise?
If inclement weather, we will make the call by 12 Noon on August 17th and post the change of date on this webpage as well as our social media accounts. We will also send an email to all pre-registered attendees. The rain date is August 19th.
- Can I donate even if I do not plan on attending the event?
Yes, you can donate if you are not attending – either online or by mailing at check to United Zion Retirement Community Attn: Car Cruise 722 Furnace Hills Pk Lititz PA 17543. We will also have a place for donations at the event for those coming to see the vehicles.
- What kind of food trucks will be featured at the Car Cruise?
We will have 3 food trucks: Bricker’s Famous French Fries, Johnny Boys and Lickity Split. Bricker’s Famous Fries has been voted the #1 French Fry Truck by York Sunday News for the last 10 years. They have fresh cut French fries, chicken tenders and more. All made with all natural ingredients and using 100% soybean oil. Johnny Boys features meatballs, ham balls, chicken cordon bleu balls, pulled pork balls with a selection of sauces including marinara, white, crab, buffalo ranch, barbecue, sweet chili, or sweet & sour. Make it a meal by adding a side of mashed potatoes or mac ’n cheese; or putting it on a hero or penne. Lickity Split has been scooping hand dipped ice cream since 1994. From milk shakes to sundaes, with flavors like Black Raspberry to Salted Caramel Truffle, there is something for everyone. Please note that all food trucks donate a portion of their proceeds to United Zion’s benevolent care.
