Cars on Main is back this Sunday
Lannon to host hot rides including two funny cars
Village of Lannon - A popular Lannon tradition has returned, thanks to village leaders. Cars on Main will return this Sunday; Village President Jerry Newman said they're expecting up to 300 cars.
"Come for breakfast, stay for lunch," is Newman's slogan for the family-friendly event that invites the public to stroll along Main Street to check out hot rods, custom, muscle and pro street cars.
The Lannon Lions Club will start the day off with a pancake and sausage breakfast from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Fire Hall on Main Street. After breakfast, head out along Main to see the eye-catching rides. A special treat this year is a chance to "come smell the nitro." Two fuel funny cars that compete at nostalgia meets across the nation will fire up at 11:30 and 2:30 p.m. "Bring your ear plugs," the event flyer suggests.
Cars on Main continues as the Lannon Flame Tamers fire up the grill for a lunch of brats, hot dogs and burgers from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Newman said chips, drinks and beer will also be available. And to keep things rolling, a DJ will spin '50s and '60s music throughout the day. Those attending also have a chance to win a variety of door prizes during a drawing at 2 p.m.
A portion of the event's proceeds will go to the Sussex Food Pantry and Elmbrook Humane Society, Newman said.
He explained that the Village Board decided to take charge of the event after it became so big the resident who originally started it decided to pass the baton. The event hit a year hiatus as no one formally took the reins.
"We (Village Board) always supported it in the past. It's a popular event; people like to be on Main Street, so we decided as a village to bring it back," Newman said, noting that in years past, Cars on Main has brought 3,000 people through the quaint village.
