This is No. 17 on the Record-Courier's list of 30 Things To Do in Portage County.
If there’s anything Ravenna residents love, it’s a good car show. Event planners looking to draw more people can usually count on a cruise-in to bump up event attendance.
Every Wednesday during the summer months, A&W Drive In and Mongoose Motorsports take turns hosting the weekly “Octane Nights” cruise ins at their respective businesses. The events build up to the annual Celebrate Portage car show, which takes place on East Main Street, drawing hundreds of cars to the block at the edge of the city limits. The show will take place on Aug. 30 this year. Many restaurants have specials for visitors to the area.
