Friday Night Cruise Night returns to town! This Friday features live music, classic and custom cars, and — in celebration of the Tour of Somerville bike race, "tricked-out" classic and custom bicycles! Head to Division Street for:

5:00–9:00 pm — A display of customized bicycles.
If you've got a unique bike you want to show off, come on out! No registration or admission fee required, just show up and let's see what you've got! We recommend that you get to Somerville by 4:00 or 5:00 pm to ensure yourself a good spot on Division Street.

Saturday, May 27

9:00–11:00 am —  A collaborative sculpture conceived by artist Bob Richardson will be assembled on Division Street, with the assistance of contributing high-school art students from Somerville and Newark. After the sculpture has been assembled, other students and community members are invited to use a black or red permanent "Sharpie" marker to add their own contribution to the sculpture on the themes of community, Memorial Day, and/or the Tour of Somerville bike races. Markers will be made available, or bring your own. Read more at
