Laytonsville Cruise In

The Laytonsville Cruise In is a year-round event. We meet every Friday at the Laytons Village Shopping Center. Harry Kraemer has a standing reservation for the cruise in folks at Julliano’s Brick Oven Pizza, we even have our own waitress at Julliano’s. Dinner starts at 4 PM and weather and temperatures permitting, the cars start arriving around 5 PM. During the summer months, we have a different food truck on Friday, thanks to Kim & Corrine at The Family Room. We do an award night on the third Friday of every month, May to October. The award night is free to enter a vehicle. If you or your company is interested in sponsoring an award, please email Harry at
