Ventura Nationals Cruise Night 2018

Although the actual show is on Saturday before Labor Day Weekend, the fun starts on Friday with an art show in Downtown Ventura at the Majestic Theater, as well as a small cruise night and a preview of the Saturday show.

This video is all about the cars that showed up to the Friday night art show, as well as those that took part in cruising downtown Ventura.
