The popular cruise part of the annual Beeline Cruise-In starts and ends at Rumsey Park the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 11, with the show taking place from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12 at Green Valley Park.

Awe-inspiring antique, classic and vintage cars return to Payson for the 26th Annual Beeline Cruise-In this weekend.

The show is all day Saturday, Oct. 12 at Green Valley Park, but the popular cruise around town — the cruise part of the “Cruise-In” event is the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 11. It’s a chance to see the beauties on the road around town.

Participants will line up for the cruise at Rumsey Park, with departure at 4:30 p.m. The cruise travels Payson Parkway from the park to Longhorn Road. Cars will go left on Longhorn to McLane Road where they will then take a right and go to West Main.

The route takes drivers east on Main to Highway 87 and then turns the cars north to the Tyler Parkway roundabout. Cars will travel Tyler Parkway to the Majestic Rim and turn into its driveway to come back out on Tyler and go west to Highway 87, take the roundabout and then travel south on Highway 87.

The route goes through the second roundabout to head west on Airport Road to Earhart Parkway, where it turns right into the Payson Airpark and travels to Aviator Circle, again turning right to return down Earhart Parkway. Off Earhart it will go right to Chennault Parkway, making a left on Chennault and go to Piper Parkway and then turn left ending at Aviator. At Aviator drivers will go right to Earhart again, taking it back to Airport Road and then going east to McLane Road.

Drivers will go right on McLane and return to Rumsey Park for a participants-only Burger Burn.

The cars, plus vendors of all kinds, will be at Green Valley Park from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12. This is a free event. For details go to
