Auto enthusiasts of all kinds gather together each August as Mineral Avenue comes to life with an exhibit of classic and antique cars, trucks, and motorcycles.

Friday Night Cruise Rules
  • NO BURNOUTS, NO EXCESSIVE SPEED, NO EXCEPTIONS! We appreciate horsepower as much as anyone, but a crowded Mineral Avenue is not the safest place to do this.
  • If you choose to lay down some rubber, you will be immediately disqualified and ejected from the cruise entirely.
  • Open containers of alcohol are strictly prohibited in cars that are cruising.
We recognize that cruising has been an important part of our car show and more importantly, our heritage. To honor this tradition, we have implemented changes with one goal in mind – for this to be a fun, safe, family-friendly community event where we can all enjoy cruising and spending the evening along Mineral Avenue. In order for this to be a successful event and for future Friday Night Cruise nights to be considered, we need everyone’s cooperation to make sure all rules are followed and everyone stays safe.
