CruZionsville returns with Porsche event
By Sophie Pappas
Car lovers and fashion enthusiasts are uniting for this year’s CruZionsville Porsche show on June 14, when the Central Indiana Region Porsche Club of America hosts its fourth annual Porsche event on Main Street.
“It’s a lot of nice people doing a lot of nice things to make this happen,” said founder of the CruZionsville show and Zionsville resident, Steve Tarr.
All proceeds of the event will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of America. Last year the event raised $12,800 for Alzheimer’s research. The goal for this year is $25,000.
“It’s just a great event,” said Amy Lacy, a Zionsville resident who is also active in raising money for Alzheimer’s research.
Tarr named the event CruZionsville, which means the cars are “cruising” through town.
At 10 a.m. the day of the event, more than 125 cars will cruise from Zionsville Meadows, down Oak Street, and then park along Main Street. The free car show will end at 3 p.m.
Some of the cars in attendance include historical Porsches. Members of the Porsche club will also be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911. Only two of these 911 Porsches reside in the state of Indiana, and one will be in Zionsville for the show.
Tarr said that the event is about bringing people together, and exposing Zionsville to the rest of the state. He has even had assistance from the Boone County Covention Visitors Bureau.
“It’s really not about how new your car is,” Tarr said.
Also during the day, there will be events for kids, a fashion show directed by local fashionista Nikki Blaine, and a food eating competition.
“We’ve got some beautiful cars coming,” Tarr said. “But there will be something for everyone.”
