A Limited Field of 400 Hit the Streets on Saturday Night

Carlisle Events and the Downtown Carlisle Association present the annual and always popular Ford Parade and Downtown Street Party on Saturday, June 1.

Automotive enthusiasts, specifically those interested in the FOMOCO brands, will line the streets of downtown Carlisle to see a wide array of cars showcased during the Carlisle Ford Nationals. The parade field is limited to only 400 Ford, Lincoln and/or Mercury vehicles.

The parade will once again be led by a select group of Ford officials showing off some of their hot new products! One of these special Ford guests will be the legendary Chuck Cantwell. Cantwell is an original GT500 engineer from the '60s and he'll join Ford Performance in the first-ever produced modern Shelby GT350R.

In addition to the parade, spectators will enjoy specialty vehicles, a wide variety of food, fanfare and quality live entertainment.
