Sycamore's Turning Back Time weekend includes a cruise night with live music on July 27 and a full-scale car show July 28.

The 1950s are making a comeback in Sycamore during Turning Back Time Weekend, Friday through Sunday. Hop into your vintage ride and cruise over to downtown Sycamore for classic cars, live entertainment, and three days of fun.

A free outdoor movie will kick off the weekend at dusk Friday. “Wreck-It Ralph” will be shown on an outdoor screen at the corner of Somonauk and Elm streets. Bring your own seating. Concessions will be available for a donation, or outside food and drinks are allowed.

Cruise Night will take place from 3 to 11 p.m. Saturday. Bringing back the sounds of the ‘50s and ‘60s, Rick Lindy and the Wild Ones will take the stage from 7 until 10 p.m. The band is known for recreating the glory days with hits from Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and The Beatles. Discover Sycamore’s Cruise Night also will include a Classic Car Cruise Parade, beer garden, disc jockey, food vendors and more.

For the third year, the Cruise Night award lineup will include the “Winning Ride” trophy and cash prize provided by Auto Meter Products. The winner will be entered into the Auto Meter Products WinningRide.com competition. The winner of that contest will have their vehicle displayed in the Auto Meter Products booth at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Vehicle registration will begin at 3 p.m. on the day of the event. Early registration is available at www.discoversycamore.com.

Sunday brings the 14th annual Fizz Ehrler Memorial Car Show to downtown Sycamore. Help the Turning Back Time Car Club reach its goal of 1,000 car show registrations. Registration will take place from 8 a.m. until noon, with the award presentation at 3:30 p.m. sharp. Attendees are encouraged to take advantage of specials at downtown merchants and restaurants.
