Oyster Bay, NY - May 28, 2014 - Every Tuesday night in the Village of Oyster Bay from now until the end of the summer, dozens of antique, historical and uniquely designed cars are on display as part of the Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce' Cruise Night. The cars line Audrey Avenue in the Village of Oyster Bay and the public is invited to view and learn about some of the classic vehicles on display. In addition, live music is provided by many local bands and some very popular Long Island musicians that are scheduled to make special appearances at Cruise Night.
The public is also invited to bring a donation of non-perishable food or make a cash donation to support Long Island Cares, Inc.-The Harry Chapin Food Bank.
