The event is primarily based at the TSB Stadium and New Plymouth Raceway grounds, where live music booms, stalls thrive, and vendors create a great atmosphere. Every day (four in total) there’s a long cruise somewhere in Taranaki, which any of the punters will tell you is one of the main attractions of Americarna. Taking part this year, we could see why. Having 800+ classic American cars cruise around Taranaki, to places like Waitara and Inglewood, then parking up in the streets (and completely shutting down the whole town) is sight to be seen. The locals decorate their front yards with American flags, shop fronts are filled with red, white and blue and everyone is out having a great time.
