Cruise Nite rescheduled to October 13-18

33rd Annual

After A flood in 2019 and the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020,
Central Nebraska Auto Club's Premier Event is needed more than ever!

Cruise Nite won’t be held on the third weekend of July, as it has for more than 25 years.

Instead, organizers are postponing the popular five-day automobile festival until Oct. 13-18.

Like so many events and celebrations, the scheduling change became necessary because of the coronavirus outbreak, Cruise Nite Chairman Brad Kernick said.

"Our steering committee met last week and figured we probably needed to pick a lane. The October weekend seemed to be a good option without a lot of competing events,” Kernick said about the decision to postpone"

He said there aren’t other car festivals that weekend, the Loper football team will be at Emporia State, and the Nebraska Cornhuskers have a bye week.
