Petaluma's Salute to American Graffiti is a classic car show and cruise that is held on the same streets that Mr. George Lucas used in 1972 to film what many believe is this best movie, American Graffiti. Cruisin' the Boulevard, Inc, the host group, will be celebrating their 10th anniversary show.

Visit with some of the original movie stars, listen to the sound of the oldies, and do a little shopping. This is free to everyone. On Saturday, the roar of over 400 classic cars will be heard on the streets of downtown Petaluma as they park their classics on the streets from the movie.  At 4 p.m. don't be alarmed at the roar of those 400 plus classic cars as they start to cruise Petaluma streets, just like they did in high school.

Cruisin' the Boulevard, inc is an all volunteer 501c3 non-profit. The net proceeds from these events is reinvested back into our community.
