Local News

SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – The four-day Salem Super Cruise begins Thursday and set-up is already underway.

The auto show portion begins at 3 p.m.

Over the next four days, historic cars and hot rods will be on display at the parking lot across from BoneShakers restaurant.

There will be three automobile competitions, along with live music and plenty of food.

Last year’s event was canceled because of the pandemic.

“The people who bring their cars here are just so excited to be out here and have it again and be involved with all the people in Salem,” said Joe Cappuzzello, service and safety director for Salem.

The city believes it will be smooth driving when it comes to traffic.

“Since we’ve done the cruise so many times, I think this is our 15th year, we have that under control. Our police officers will be out in force, directing traffic and making sure everyone will have a safe and fun time,” Cappuzello said.

The Goodyear blimp is also scheduled to fly over the event on Thursday between noon and 5 p.m.
