As Easton Mayor Sal Panto Jr. recalls, Northampton Street at one point was the most popular cruising strip in the Lehigh Valley, but that changed in the 1980s when the city banned the practice.

Nearly 30 years later, Panto says it’s time to bring back cruising, albeit on a limited basis.

Easton will be hosting cruise nights on one Saturday per month between May and August this summer, Panto announced this afternoon at a news conference.

Classic car owners are invited to drive the strip from 6 to 9 p.m. on the designated nights. The Mayor’s Office of Special Events is teaming with WGPA Sunny 1100, which will broadcast cruising music during the nights — think the Beach Boys, The Four Seasons and Motown groups — over the AM airwaves.
