Uptown Cruise Night
COMING BACK for the second annual event on JUNE 4, 2016!
Information, schedule for the
2015 Uptown Cruise
Hosted by The Mayberry Foundation, through the generosity of
Citizens Bank and American Heritage Bank
6-11 p.m. — Cruise at will. Cruise turnarounds will be familiar old spots, with two alternates on each end to help flow of traffic. See map by clicking here.
–> On the west side of town on Caddo, turnarounds will be at Sonic and the alternate Octane Lube station on the corner of “C” Street.
–> On the north end on Broadway, turnarounds will be Mazzio’s and the alternate at the fitness center (old Walmart) on Highway 99. It is past Mazzio’s between Crestview Drive and the Arkansas River bridge on the north side of town. You also can use Homeland as an alternate (go in the parking lot entrance, out around the edge of lot to the far north side and the Navajo stop sign). Stay at edge of lot, don’t go through it and interfere with shoppers.
–> Road rules apply, plus no burnouts, no drag racing and no extreme bass noise, please. Please keep sound systems at a normal volume inside your vehicle. This will help everyone enjoy the event. No major rules, just be safe and courteous.
–> If you aren’t wanting to cruise or be a part of the action at the stage pavilion, you can set up in lawn chairs anywhere on the route to visit with family and friends and watch the parade of cars go past.
7 p.m. — Live music from Beacon Drive at the stage pavilion at Broadway and Delaware.
After dark — Outdoor showing of “American Graffiti” at the stage pavilion.
- Reserved parking for show cars, classics, hot rods and muscle cars, bikes: See map by clicking here. On North-South Broadway in front of shops and East Delaware from Broadway to Jordan. (If necessary, overflow on E. Cherokee Street from Broadway to Division and W. Cherokee to Jordan, plus the small parking lot on SW corner of Pawnee and Broadway). Owners can come and go. Park, pop the hood and display your hard work and investments.
- All trailers hauling in vehicles need to park in the fitness center (old Walmart) parking lot. You can unload and drive to join the cruise from there. If you have a NON-street legal vehicle you are hauling in, note that you will not be able to cruise in it, because our main drag is a state highway.You can, however, display your non-street legals at the fitness center parking lot. If you prefer not to be that far from the action near the stage area, you may unload non-street legals at the corner of Broadway and Cherokee and park them in “overflow reserved” on Cherokee. But your trailer has to continue to the fitness center lot. To use this option, any unloading at Broadway and Cherokee must be complete by 6 pm, or else you will be directed to the fitness center lot regardless.Please keep in mind we must do it this way in order to keep the street near the stage from being clogged with trailers, and we don’t want you to get stuck on a side street with insufficient space to make turns with a trailer.
- All other vehicles can park on side streets, church parking lots, etc. Please obey all barricades on side streets. They will be strategically placed for several reasons.
- At least 13 local restaurants — from BBQ to pizza to Mexican to Chinese — will be open for you to patronize and give a shot in the arm with your wallet. See map by clicking here.
- Plus, for those who are stationary near the stage pavilion, there will be plenty of great food. Pawnee’s Ramona Horsechief, who won the national Indian taco title, will have her champion tacos nachos, roasted chipotle salsa for sale; plus there will be grilled burgers from the CHS QB Club and drinks from the CHS wrestling boosters. The Mayberry Foundation also will be selling two sizes of sno cones to help offset costs of providing the fun, free event to the public. (So if you dig the event, come support us with a few bucks and get something sweet)
In addition to sponsors Citizens Bank and American Heritage Bank, the foundation would like to give special thanks to The Cleveland American, City of Cleveland, Cleveland Petroleum, Central Vo-Tech, Richard Spears, T.H. Rogers, Indian Electric, Homeland.
