Muscle cars, trucks and some of the most iconic vehicles in recent memory will once again line the streets of downtown Henning this summer.

Following the success of last year’s event, the second annual Tri-County Cruisers Rock N Stroll event will be held the third Friday of June, July, August and September. The first of four community events, aimed at attracting custom and classic cars, motorcycles and other vehicles, will be held on Friday from 4-8 p.m.

Last year approximately 30 vehicles lined the streets of downtown Henning for the first ever Rock N Stroll event in town. The event is modeled after a similar event that is held each month in Pierz. 

Don Jorgenson attended one of the events a few years ago, which had approximately 500 vehicles. All of the merchants in downtown Pierz stayed open during the event and proved to be a popular way to bring people to the downtown business district. 

There is no charge to register a vehicle for Rock N Stroll and registration will take place at Henning Hardware in downtown Henning. 

Several local businesses will feature specials and music will help to set the tone of the night. The event is open to people of all ages. 

In addition to Friday, the Rock and Stroll events will also take place on July 21, Aug. 18 and Sept. 15 from 4-8 p.m.

The Trinity Center will also host a special event in conjunction with the Rock N Stroll car shows as it will host an open mic night from 4-8 p.m. Refreshments will be served and the Trinity Store will be open throughout the night.
