Cruising Fountain Hills for (14) Years

This year launches our 15th Season of Cruise-Ins in and around Fountain Hills. We all agree that CRUZ’N @ PHIL’S in Fountain Hills has proven to offer the best of everything for Cruisers. However, we feel the most important element of any car event is the Cruisers themselves.

Today, on opening day the weather was perfect and we had over (122) Vehicles and (11) of those vehicles were attending for their first time. Further, We enjoyed hosting 25 cars from the Camaro Club with over 45 cruisers.

Let me introduce our dedicated team of volunteers who help produce CRUZ’N @ PHIL’S every Sunday, October 08, 2017 thru May 20, 2018:
