SCOTTSBORO, AL (WAFF) -

Scottsboro city leaders hope for a big return on a $5,000 investment.

City officials said they hope it will be beneficial not only for the residents but for the downtown area as well.

City officials hope to see bumper to bumper traffic on the Scottsboro Square starting March 30 when they begin the Saturday Cruise In.

The city council recently approved $5,000 to go toward the event that will bring in vintage cars, vendors, and live entertainment to the Square.

It will take place every Saturday prior to the first Monday of each month to the fall.

The monetary appropriation will go toward paying for entertainment and other aspects of the event.

Mayor Melton Potter said it has been tried in other cities with success, so they hope for a similar result.

It will be held on the Square starting at 5 p.m. and run until.

"It's to help people, give them something to do on one Saturday night a month.  Something a little bit different," said Potter. "And it's also something to bring people to the downtown area.  Our downtown Square, our courthouse square, is a beautiful area and so maybe people from out of town will see it who wouldn't come otherwise."

The Cruise Ins will run through October.
