Boppin’ Bo’s Music Fest & Cruise-In 4 Vets

Doing it Again – For the Vets

Bullit 1 Peeling out, burning rubber, smokin’ the tires, all music to the ears of America’s youth years ago as we cruised the main drag, showing off our ride and just hanging out at the local burger joint with the other kids and listening to the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Ronny and the Daytona’s and more. A tradition largely lost today as raw horsepower has been replaced by computer controls.

The tradition lives again as Boppin’ Bo’s Malt Shop and Grill at Vancouver Plaza will be hosting a Music Fest & Cruise-In in support of the Clark County Veterans Court, Sept. 14, 2013.

People packed Boppin’ Bo’s last May 18 for 4 hours of entertainment, cool cars and of course, to enjoy a taste of unique American cuisine, a California Dreamin’ Burger, a Lucy Grilled Cheese or even a Graceland Special, a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich.

DSC00388 ASummer got an early start Saturday under a cool northwest cloudy sky and showers. For the balmy raining day the car turn out was tremendous, many people coming out to Boppin’ Bo’s for an afternoon of eats, cars and Rock n Roll.

The day started with decorating and loading a truck graciously supplied by Waste Connections with banners promoting the Clark County Veterans Court, sound equipment and of course, the entertainers to treat spectators lining the route of the Hazel Dell Parade of Bands to a taste of what they would find at Boppin’ Bo’s.

The lovely Petya Grozeva, Champion Fiddler Cynthia Hamm and Elvis Tribute Artist Mark Stevenz manned the float, singing and playing as the float slowly traveled the parade route.

Route 66, once known as the Main Street of America since it was one of our early roads cutting through the heart of America. Its fame spawned songs, a hit TV show of the same name and epitomized the American love affair with our cars as many envisioned cruising down the highway, with the top down, listening to the cool songs of the era by the Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, Jan & Dean and of course, Elvis Presley.

The once famous highway has been bypassed by modern Interstate Highways today and is but a historical memory, but our visions of cruising in a cool car, like a vintage Corvette remain imbedded in our souls as does the songs like ‘409,’ ‘Little Deuce Coupe,’ ‘Maybellene’ and so many more.
