The North St. Paul History Cruze started on a Friday night in 1996 with about 25 cars near the intersection of 7th Avenue and Margaret Street. It has grown and now draws 700 to 1,800 cars each week that park along a half-mile + stretch of 7th Avenue and fills many adjacent parking lots. The street is closed to other traffic for the night and a fair-like atmosphere prevails with street vendors, music, and food.
The Cruze runs each Friday night from early June to late September (6:00pm - 10:00pm) rain or shine. During the summer only six Friday nights are reserved for a "Car Club of the Night". This year the MMGG has been selected and assigned August 19th as a featured Car Club.
The featured Club has a new reserved "premier" show-lot location. The lot is located on the east end of 7th Ave on the southeast corner of the intersection of 7th Ave and Charles Street. You enter the show-lot from Charles St.
The lot can hold up to 20+ cars so please contact me (Paul Lyon, firstname.lastname@example.org) or signup on the website “Events” section if you will be attending. The Main Street show-lot will open at 5:00pm. As in previous years I will need some help directing attendees into the show lot and help picking the top car of the night.
More information to come.
Best wishes, Paul Lyon
