Cars from past and present lined up along East Railroad Avenue for the 23rd annual Verona car cruise hosted by the Chamber of Commerce.

Event organizer and Mayor Dave Ricupero said about 115 cars and 200 people participated in this year’s installment.

“It’s a very big event,” he said. “We have a very nice and organized car event with vendors and a deejay playing music from the late ’50s and early ’60s.”

More than 100 cars have consistently been in the cruise, which is always set for the second Saturday in August.

“People look forward to that and they remember that,” Ricupero said. “You want to be consistent (in scheduling). It went very well. I’m pleased every year. It threatened to rain in the morning, and it cleared up. It was a beautiful evening.

Dash plaques were given out, and about 40 cars were in a police-escorted procession from Verona through Oakmont and back to conclude the festivities.

Ricupero said planning for the next car cruise will be in June.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
