Rensselaer Cruise Night in Rensselaer, Indiana is a pretty big deal in Jasper County. This year seemed bigger and (dare I say) noisier than ever! Folks set up drink stands and one guy was even selling T-shirts!

The 2011 Rensselaer Cruise Night began at Brookside Park with a car show–just like every year. People park their cars at the Rensselaer, Indiana park and everyone kind of roams around checking out the assortment. This isn’t just a classic car show. There’s a huge range of cars. This year there was even a semi!

Did you miss it this year? Never fear! little Indiana not only took photos, but there is a video of the cars cruising as well. I admit it started before I was quite ready so I believe we missed four cars or so before I got the thing turned on. Was it just me or were they all going much faster than usual this year?
