BURRILLVILLE – Buckleupallofus Cruisin’ Safety Car Show Season starts in April, and with weather permitting, the very first car show of 2022 in this region worth noting, gets underway at Bass Pro Shops and Gillette Stadium Thursday, April 7.
Mass Cruisers puts on this very popular bi-weekly Thursday car show that attracts hundreds of show vehicles and thousands of spectators to this huge parking lot, New England Patriots NFL football stadium and shopping center. Automotive enthusiasts come from all across the region to display their rides and attend one of the largest classic car and truck venues in the New England area. Cruisin’ Bruce Palmer plays a great selection of oldies music, and Bucky child passenger safety coloring posters, fridge magnets, stickers and more will be passed out to thousands of kids and families reminding them about Boost Up! and Buckle Up! safety, and to have their car seats inspected by certified inspectors across New England and New York State this spring and summer.
You can reach out to your local police department and ask about their car seat inspection options, times and locations. Many car seat check ups events begin later in the month of May around the region and can accommodate your child passenger safety check list. Child passenger safety community outreach efforts are very important and can actually help reduce traffic related crash injuries and potentially save lives.
Bucky appears and showcases at more than one hundred classic car and truck shows, cruise nights, community events, festivals, fairs, live radio broadcasts, automotive dealerships, libraries, daycares, grade schools, restaurants, plazas, malls, car washes, police and fire departments as well as retail establishments, banks and credit unions – reminding kids and families to be safer in their vehicles. Thousands of traffic safety and buckle up safety educational and awareness materials are distributed every month during the cruisin’ season every year to kids and adults.
