The Atascadero Performing Arts Center Committee (APACC) invites you to "get off the line" before anyone else in anticipation of the 2012 Hot El Camino Nite event in downtown Atascadero. Hundreds of classic cars will cruise El Camino Real on the evening of Friday, Aug. 17th as the 20th annual event returns to Atascadero.

Tickets are $25 and include film, appetizers, pizza root beer floats, movie trivia, 60s costume contest and wine-tasting by St. Hilaire and Grizzly Republic wineries. (21 and over only, please)
