Second West Fargo Cruise Night to be held Thursday

  The West Fargo Area Chamber of Commerce and the Toppers Car Club are presenting their second annual West Fargo Cruise Night on Thursday, August 19, from 5 to 9 p.m. on Sheyenne Street.

Car enthusiasts are encouraged to showcase their favorite vehicles and spectators are invited to Sheyenne Street to take in all the excitement the evening of fun has to offer.

Those participating are asked to begin parking their cars along the west side of Sheyenne Street at 4:30 p.m. Drivers will also be able to "cruise" Sheyenne from Main Avenue to Seventh Avenue. Organizers are trying to make it as easy as possible for those individuals showing their cars, by keeping as many of the parking lots open as possible. Spectators are encouraged to park their vehicles along the open side streets.

For everyone's added convenience, there will also be food vendors set up along the route. The VFW will be serving hot dogs and have a beer garden outside. The Silver Dollar Bar will also be set up with food and beverage; Stars and Strikes will offer an 'inside' pizza and pitcher of beer special; Pat's Treats will be featuring novelty ice cream items; and State Bank & Trust will be offering free cookies.

WDAY radio personality Jay Thomas will be serving as emcee, announcing the winners of door prizes that will be given away to individuals registered for Cruise Night. The prizes are being donated by a variety of local businesses, including Choice Financial, Westside Hair, Dashes Duds, Edward Jones, Stars and Strikes, Sandy's Donuts, Fancy Paws, State Bank & Trust, and Toppers Car Club.

Sponsors for the event include WDAY AM Radio, Berg Auto Supply, Silver Dollar Bar, West Fargo VFW, Tony Eckert and Sons, and Payroll Express.

Four of the gold and silver sponsors will also be making their personal 'picks' of their favorite cars of the evening, recognizing the individual winners with a special certificate for taking the time to participate.

Registration for Cruise Night will take place in front of the West Fargo VFW by the Toppers Car Club tent. There is no charge.

The third and final Cruise Night of the season is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 16, in advance of the annual West Fest community celebration which will take place Saturday, Sept. 18.
