Hempfield Township officials are hosting their first classic car cruise this weekend as part of their final summer concert at Hempfield Park.

The event will kick off Saturday at 5 p.m., and performers will include Aubrey Burchell, who competed on American Idol last year, and Joe Grushecky & The Houserockers, who have played rock since 1976.

All cars, trucks and motorcycles are welcome to the car cruise. Registration is $5 and dash plaques will be available for the first 50 registered vehicles. Public admission to the event is free.

Speal’s on Wheels, a local food truck, will be available throughout the evening.

The summer concert series began in May after a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly built Smail Auto Group Amphitheater. Hosting five concerts throughout the summer, bands included Switch, East Coast Turnaround, Chuck Blasko and The Vogues, Jeff Jimerson and Airborne and North of Mason Dixon, or NOMaD.

Officials also hosted three movie nights and a Kidz Fest that featured live performances, face painting, inflatables and more.

More information on Saturday’s event can be found by calling Hempfield Township Parks and Recreation at 724-834-7232.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
