Wheels On Water Street

The Friday before Fall Fest in September | 5- 9 p.m. | Downtown New London

2022 NL Chamber Wheels on Water St

A great start to Fall Fest – the New London Area Chamber of Commerce, New London Lions Club and the Wolf River Classic Chevy Club invite you to downtown New London on Friday evening for Wheels on Water Street.

If you have a classic vehicle, or one you are particularly proud of, this rain or shine event is open to all makes and models. There is not a vehicle, motorcycle or spectator entry fee; dash plaques will be given to the first 150 vehicles and event patches to the first 50 motorcycles to enter.  Come and show off your hot rod, classic refurbished vehicle or motorcycle in this popular event.  There is no pre-registration.

Vehicles and motorcycles line up starting at 4 p.m. in a staging area that goes into the fifth ward, past Dairy Queen on North Water St., with viewing of vehicles and motorcycles from 5 – 9 p.m. on North Water St., downtown. A cruise starts at 9 p.m. and vehicles and motorcycles will cruise the loop on North Water St. and Wolf River Ave., and then disperse.

As a spectator, you can enjoy seeing some great old classics, participate in raffles, and win prizes as Yo DJ Entertainment – James Kelley rounds out the evening with musical entertainment. The New London Lions Club will have food and beverages available for purchase in the beer garden – no carry-ins please.
