Cruise Coverage: The Parkette Drive-In Cruise Brought Out The Coolness!


Cruise Coverage: The Parkette Drive-In Cruise Brought Out The Coolness!

(Words and photos by Doug Gregory) – Parkette Drive-in was established in the early 50s in Lexington, Kentucky and is still in the same location.  Its iconic sign was placed a few years later and continues to be a landmark on the inside beltway of the city some 60 years later.  The place has been featured on ‘Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives’ and was recently named the top drive-in/diner/dive in Kentucky for 2016.  We used to hang out there before the renovation that took place about a decade ago and haven’t been back for a cruise in years.

We showed up late, but that was because there’d been a pretty heavy rain pass through and we chose to wait till things were clear before heading out.  We only managed to photograph about a third of the cars present as we chose to shoot some pics then get some tasty grub.  Cars moved in and out as we dined in the ‘garage’ – a patio-type dining area with multiple garage doors  on three sides that open things up a good bit.  We weren’t fast enough to catch a bunch of the cars that came through, but what we did capture looked pretty good.  We will definitely make the trip to this cruise again.

Enjoy the photos.

    Forgot to mention a handful of these were done by my 10yr-old son, Tyler. We’ll have three cameras clicking this weekend at the Ohio Mile. Guess who gets to sort through all of them…..
