Whites Creek, TN (July 11, 2012) – With the classic car season in full swing, the historic Fontanel Mansion is very excited to announce its latest weekly tradition, the Concert Cruise-In at Fontanel. Soon to become a regular ritual for Middle Tennessee hot rodders, muscle car lovers, and enthusiasts of automobiles new and old, the Concert Cruise-In at Fontanel promises to offer more than any weekly cruise-in anywhere else.
The Concert Cruise-In at Fontanel will be held all summer long until this October. Starting each Monday at 5pm and running until 9pm that night, enthusiasts are welcome to bring their hot rods, customs, classic and late model muscle cars, and tuned imports to the Fontanel property to enjoy free live music being performed on the outdoor stage facing the massive Fontanel fairgrounds. The Concert Cruise-In at Fontanel will be free to all, whether you’re bringing your four-wheeled pride-and-joy or just coming to check ‘em out.
While enjoying the great music attendees are welcome to come by the outdoor beer garden for a cold drink and a burger, or pizza by the slice right beside Cafe Fontanella by Amico’s. The fine-dining Italian restaurant and wine bar is open to the Concert Cruise-In at Fontanel as well, offering traditional Italian-American dishes with a unique and fun twist featuring fresh seafood, beef, poultry, hand-made pasta, pizza, salads and more.
