This year, instead of doing our Fall show, we are volunteering at the Cruise For Troops cruise, car show & swap meet. The event raises funds to go to the Fallen Heroes Children’s Education Fund of Tribute to the Troops, and ALL proceeds will go to the fund.
From the Cruise For Troops website: ” We invite all grateful Americans to join us in paying tribute to our fallen troops. Bring out your hot rods, muscle cars, and motorcycles and take part in the largest combined car and motorcycle cruise in the upper Midwest! Don’t have a cool car, truck or bike, come join us for a great time anyway, we have plenty of activities for the entire family!”
“Patriotic cruise through the north metro back roads. (Arrive with a full tank!)“
WHEN: Saturday, September 24th, 2016 from 9 am – 5 pm. Registration is 9 am – noon, and the cruise runs from noon – 2 pm.
WHERE: Running Aces Casino & Racetrack: 15201 Running Aced Blvd, Columbus, MN 55025.
It is $15 to pre-register online at Cruise For Troops (Registration closes at 9am Tuesday, September 20th) or $20 the day of the event to participate in the cruise. Spectators are FREE, with a suggested $5 donation.
The opening ceremony is at 11 am, followed by a mandatory safety briefing. The cruise runs from noon – 2 pm, and the car show & swap meet runs from 9 am – 5 pm.
There will be a raffle & drawings for a Polaris 2016 Sportsman 450, and a Hammerhead Mudhead Go Cart! Only $5.00 per entry, and you do not need to be present to win (only to purchase the tickets!)
The awesome Holy Rocka Rollaz will be playing from 2 – 5 pm. There will be patriotic displays, a large silent auction, a 50’s pinup contest, live music, vendors, food & drink, and entertainment for the whole family!
This year they’ll have a bouncy house and obstacle course for the kids! There will also be face painting and a magician from 2-5! All kids activities are FREE!
Please tell your friends to come out and help us support the families of our fallen troops!
Hope to see you there 🙂
