Since 2000, Park on Park has been a staple of Mundelein fun. The cruise night specializes in pre-1977 vehicles only. By limiting attendants to classic cars, the event draws some of the finest vehicles in the area. The quality of the vehicles consistently amazes me. We offer an organized event that has something for owners and spectators alike. We hope for another great year for everyone involved. Nostalgia is back in a big way, and Park on Park offers a heavy dose. Mundelein Park on Park is the second Wednesday of every month from May to September. www.parkonpark.org.
