Due to national and state recommendations to limit gathering sizes, West Fargo's June Cruise Night scheduled for Thursday, June 18, has been canceled, the city announced in a Thursday press release.
Per the release:
Typical Cruise Nights see thousands of attendees across a seven-block stretch of Sheyenne Street where crowds often become dense. Because the intention of the event is to provide a free, community event to the public, limiting attendance and proximity to attendees is not possible.
This cancellation is for the June Cruise Night only. Event organizers will continue to monitor the recommendations and make determinations for each of the remaining Cruise Nights.
Alternatively, organizers are offering a photo contest and Facebook live event from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, June 18. Now through Wednesday, June 3, individuals can submit a picture of their classic car by messaging the West Fargo Cruise Night Facebook page. The photos will be placed into a photo album and open for the public to vote for their favorite by liking it.
The first round of voting will be open Thursday, June 4, through Wednesday, June 10. Following the initial voting, the top 10 photos will be available for final voting Thursday, June 11, through Wednesday, June 17. During the Facebook Live event, members of the Toppers Custom Car Club, including WDAY radio host Jay Thomas, will count down the top 10 photos and announce the official winner at the end of the event. The winner will receive a prize package.
