History Cruze Car Show

We have some good news and some not so good news about this year’s History Cruze. We haveobtained approval from the NSP City Council and all the permits have been issued. So we are a go again for our thirtieth year of weekly shows. The not so good news is that there will be sewer construction again this year. The city will finish the sewer replacement on the west end of the city from where they left off two years ago. That is from west of the Post Office to First Ave.

For those that come early (some as early as 1:00) the spots you have used on the west end of town willnot be available. While we are on the subject of early arrivals, we have to say: DON’T DO IT! The
remaining street parking is where there are businesses that need the street parking for their customers.If their parking is taken up by classic cars so their customers can’t park, they will complain to the city. If
the city gets complaints, they will cancel the permits and the show will be shut down! Help us continueto provide the show so we all have a place to come on Friday nights. For those that think we don’t
notice, having your wife bring the daily driver and then taking that spot when she leaves is notacceptable. Bringing your newer than 1975 car earlier than 6:00 and then staying is just bad form and it
makes a lot of people “upset” (to say the least). North St. Paul has a two hour parking limit during non-show hours, so if you try these tactics you are subject to a ticket.

We are still formulating plans for traffic patterns during construction, so bear with us during the first fewweeks while we iron out the kinks. Remember, all the people in yellow shirts are volunteers no one is
getting paid. The History Cruze in a non-profit organization. The money we get from vendor fees andsponsorships helps fund the show (permit fees, insurance, porta-potties, etc.) and any funds left at the
end of the year goes to local charity. Help us continue to provide one of the largest weekly free toparticipant and spectator shows around.

This year we will start with the first show on June 2 and run weekly (except June 23 for BTT 50’s)through Sept. 15. Shows start at 6:00 pm and go to 10:00pm (subject to rainouts or if everyone leaves
early because of darkness)
