Cruisin’ Scene at Bass Pro Shops and Gillette Stadium

By Jim Weicherding
 It took awhile but it appears after weeks of non-stop postponements due to the pandemic we are starting to get back to normal. Normal being used relatively and nothing like we were used to on the cruisin’ scene pre-pandemic. 
After two months of delays, Mass Cruisers and Bass Pro Shops began hosting their bi-weekly car shows at Gillette Stadium to the delight of thousands of show vehicle owners and spectators. This show attracts the largest crowds across New England and you will find show vehicles adorning license plates from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. 
This car show is the longest running seasonal automotive event that typically ends the week of Halloween every year. Most expire in late September or early October. I don’t know of any other area car shows that goes until Halloween week. 


Governor Charlie Baker recently lifted all restrictions across the state allowing this venue to start for the cruisin’ season. Better late, than never, like last summer. If you have a classic ride or just love seeing all of the beautiful show vehicles and mingle with automotive enthusiasts, then Bass Pro Shops and Gillette Stadium is the place to be every other Thursday over the next four months thanks to the Mass Cruisers. 
Enjoy the great oldies during the event brought to youby Cruisin’ Bruce Palmer and sponsored by Peter Sacchetti at Sacchetti Classic Insurance. This is a fantastic car show and everyone involved is dedicated to making sure you have a great and exciting experience. Keep this automotive hobby and car culture thriving for years to come. Please, “take a kid to a car show.”
