The cruise-ins are the result of pre-season brainstorming, according to Magee Farms employee Katie Bickford, who is coordinating the bi-weekly events. The first Magee Farms Cruise-in & BBQ was held June 16, and although there were only a handful of cars at the inaugural event, Bickford said they were each unique in their own way.

One of the cars was an Austin Marina GT — one of only 12 such cars on the East Coast, Bickford said.

“There were some really cool cars,” she said, adding that she is hopeful that as the summer progresses, “we get a good group together” for local car enthusiasts to enjoy.

Bickford said owners of cars, trucks and motorcycles are welcome to show off their vehicles at the cruise-ins. There is no registration fee, nor is pre-registration necessary. Parking is also free for “spectators.”

Hocker’s BBQ truck will be at the farm during the cruise-ins, with their hotdogs, barbecue and fries. The Magee Farms produce stand will also be open, with an abundance of local produce, as well as jams, jellies, salad dressings and other goodies.

Cruise-ins are planned for the following Fridays, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., through the remainder of the summer: June 30, July 7, July 21, Aug. 4, Aug. 18 and Sept. 1.

Magee Farms is also planning to hold free family movie nights at both their Selbyville and Lewes locations, starting in July, with popcorn and other snacks available to purchase.

Magee Farms is located at 34857 Lighthouse Road, Selbyville. For more information on the Summer BBQ & Cruise-Ins, call (302) 524-8128.
