Thanks to all the wonderful Car Show participants, sponsors, vendors and spectators who came out for the 16th Annual Endless Summer Cruisin October 10-11-12-13, 2013.

Lots of car shows took place at the oceanfront Inlet and Convention Center as well as various satellite locations throughout the town, including Crab Alley, Gold Coast Mall, Halls Restaurant, Hooters Restaurant, Marina Deck, Oasis Bar and Grill, Phillips Restaurant, Seacrets, the Town of Berlin, and the Tanger Outlets.
