Record Breaking Crowd At Caffeine & Octane June 5 2010. Alpharetta Georgia

Easy to get to and the support of Barnes and Noble Book seller and Starbucks coffee has turned this venue into the

largest monthly Cruise in the South. The truly incredible thing is not just the sheer numbers but the quality and rarity of some of the cars that show up. Every first Sunday of the month this incredible gathering happens. All the parking lots around Barns and Noble were filled and spectators parked in adjacent lots and across the street. I estimate that there were 1,300 display cars and upwards of 10,000 spectators. Check out JP Brady's Photos, his eye and camera not only caught the flavor of the event but some incredible personal moments. I took a few too.

This was my second time and the verity of cars are simply awesome. I met some very cool people too. Last week's warning about vendors must have gone unheeded. There was a t-shirt vendor setting up next to me around 7:15. A cop came over and asked if they had permission from the organizers. A small debate ended in the vendor packing up and leaving freeing up 3 parking spots that were filled within 5 minutes.

Thanks for the warning as I am guilty of burnouts from time to time.

Pat,it is just off 400 & Mancel at the AMC Theater & Barns & Noble's parking lot. The city is very supportive, we have been warned that it will be shut down if any holigans burn out or show excesive speed on the on the road.

Turnout and quality was indeed incredible! About 8 of us from Ford Performance of Atlanta had our cars there. If it starts filling any earlier, will have to consider sleeping overnight? LOL This has undoubtedly surpassed Po Boys, which has been largest with between 5-800 cars.

 

I believe one of reasons for huge success is the timing, as in the incredible heat we're having, few want to be out in a parking lot on black asphalt in the worst heat of theday between 1-5. Very pleasant yesterday!  Those that organize and put on car shows should take note? Even seems to be "2 shifts" for the several hundred cars at W Cobb Wendy's and also Po Boys! Late afternoon, early evening might seem to be a good idea....especially if tied to bar/restaurant location?

Officially 7:30am to 11:00am, in reality people begin arriving at 6 am. Yesterday by 7 the parking lot in front of Barnes & Noble was half full and completely full by 8. Then the overflow goes into the side and rear lots, Spectators park behind the theater and in a side lot. Yesterday people were parking across the street at Toys are us and walking across at the light.

What time does it start and end?
