Cowboys and Classic Cars~
What an exciting week it is turning out to be! As I have been gathering all of the cool stuff going on this weekend I am getting so excited! It is a weekend like this that Ramona really shines! From our AMAZING Cruise Night to the Ramona Rodeo, this weekend we are pulling out all the stops to make it a great one for the ENTIRE community!!
Tonight there are a couple great events happening. First our AMAZING Chamber of Commerce is having their Chamber Mixer tonight! Tonight’s mixer will be at the Chamber Building on Main Street and will be hosted by our great Ramona Real Estate Association! This event is open to the public and will run from 6pm-8pm. Here is what is great about attending this event, not only will you be able to network with Ramona Business professionals but you will also be at a great location to watch our next event of the evening the AWESOME American Graffiti Cruise Night. I have a feeling that this cruise is going to be a great one! Tonight’s cruise will have the usual lineup of cool cars but in addition to that there will be a whole team of bikers out tonight flying American Flags in honor of Memorial Day coming up! Our last event for the evening is the start of the Ramona Rodeo with events starting at 8pm with free admission tonight!!
I’m a foodie so this part is my favorite!!! Here are tonight’s Cruise Night Specials:
Pamo Valley Winery Tasting Room
