Hot Summer Nights draws thousands

The weather could not have been better last Thursday as residents flocked downtown to check out the cool cars on display as part of the Hot Summer Nights. Danville Police Chief Chris Wenzel said the event brought in an estimated 10,000 people to downtown Danville. Hot Summer Nights features dozens of classic automobiles, from muscle cars to ambulances to military vehicles to Hartz Avenue and the surrounding streets. Residents and visitors were able to enjoy live music, shaved ice, weight lifting demonstrations and all that downtown Danville has to offer. Traffic was rerouted around the downtown for the several hours, but no significant backups were reported. Wenzel said few problems were reported that night, with the only police activity being the theft of four motorcycles.
