Greg Borrelli created May Madness over 30 years ago, to commemorate those amazing Cruise Nights here in the 50s. George Lucas captured the magic of those festive, furtive summer evenings in his film American Graffiti, which was partially filmed right here on Fourth Street Downtown! Come be part of the magic and nostalgia, help keep the tradition in top running condition!
