Classic cars line University Ave in Waterloo


A new tradition is shaping up for classic car enthusiasts in eastern Iowa. Of course, on Memorial Day weekend, the 4th Street Cruise rolls through downtown Waterloo.

On Labor Day weekend, it's the University Avenue cruise in Waterloo.

It's the 5th year for the event that brings out hundreds of cars and hundreds of people to see those cars.

The cars are not all classics.

There are some new ones, too.

It started with about 50 vehicles in it's first year in 2006.

Now there are about 600.

"We just think it's an event that's good for the community. It gets people back on University again. We've talked to a few of the businesses, made sure it's OK with them, and yes, they love the event. Because it gets people back on University, the way it used to be," says co-organizer Jim Koch.
