Vintage wheels will be rolling down Berlin’s Main Street once again this Saturday for the annual Berlin Spring Cruisers event.

For the second year in a row, the event will be at full force after previous renditions of cruising events had to accommodate covid-19 restrictions.

Starting at 6 a.m., Main Street and adjacent streets, including Broad, Pitt and Commerce, will be shut down to accommodate the event, which runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Registration for prospective cruisers begins at 8 a.m.

The event includes a 50-50 raffle, live music from Ocean Pines outfit Still Rockin, and grab-and-go breakfast and lunch fare from nearby restaurants, including Sterling Tavern. Ocean 98’s Big Al Reno will emcee the event.

“It is a free display of vintage automobiles,” Berlin Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Larnet St. Amant said. “We close the streets, we charge $10 per car and that includes the opportunity to be judged.”

Awards will be handed out at 2 p.m. Participants receive a commemorative T-shirt.

“We welcome all cars,” St. Amant said. “Everyone is invited and welcome. It’s a fun day to walk around town and check out vintage cars in an historic town.”

St. Amant said the event typically draws around 200 participants but if everyone follows the proper registration protocol, it can accommodate up to 300 cars.

For non-cruising attendees, the event is free.

“It’s family-oriented, it’s in an historic town, it’s the best of everything — food, entertainment, cars, shopping,” St. Amant said. “Everyone’s excited to have people here and we love to welcome the cars, cruisers, their families. (Over the years) the same people come, which we love. You start getting to know people. It’s fun, and they start to reconnect with each other when they’re here. It’s like a little cruisers reunion.”
