TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — On Saturday night, Wabash Ave was filled with hundreds of vintage and unique cars.

It was part of an event known as ‘Bringing Back the Bash,” which aims to connect cars and people.

Vehicles traveled from Brown Avenue to 8th street. Along the way, drivers stopped to enjoy various activities.

T-shirts and raffle tickets were being sold to raise money for charities and local organizations, like the Humane Shelter, Happiness Bag, Shriners/children’s hospital, and a Veterans organization.

Organizers also say the cruise is meant to pay tribute to the ones before us, and also to the younger generation for future cruises.

“Growing up here in Terre Haute we all cruised back in the ’90s. Over the last year, I’ve been talking to a lot of friends and family, they kept saying how great would it be to have the younger generation to come out here and see what it was like.” Sonny Rooney, the Event Organizer, said.

The goal is to make this event into a two-day function next year.
