There’s nothing better than a summer evening spent down by the river in downtown Stillwater. Cruising on the Croix provides a great free, family-friendly event every Wednesday in June, July, and August (with the exception of July 22) from 5:00 to 10:00 pm. The first 125 cars will receive a dash plaque. There will also be live music on the first Wednesday of each month from 6:00 to 9:00.
The show will be downtown along the scenic St. Croix River stretching from Chestnut Street north to Mulberry. Vendors will be on hand selling the usual car show fare: hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream, tacos, coffee, lemonade, and so forth. The vendor’s fees will go toward downtown beautification. Valley Outreach will also be running a Pepsi booth: their proceeds will go directly to benefit the food shelf.
Bring the whole family out to check out the great vintage rides and soak up the summer sun!
