The City of Wauseon welcomed back Super Cruise Nights on Tuesday, June 21st. Enthusiasts from the local area and beyond came to view all types of vehicles from older classic cars to newer cars. Sports cars, dragsters, tractors, motorcycles and trucks were also included in the show.
Cruise Nights take place every Tuesday night during the month of May and continue through the month of August. Super Cruise takes place on the third Tuesday of the month, with each Super Cruise bringing in a larger number of cars and vendors. This Super Cruise saw 139 vehicles in attendance.
Cruise Nights started in Wauseon back in 1991 making it 32 years old. Due to Covid-19, this year is the 30th year the event has taken place. Martin Taylor, the announcer for the event, explained that everything has continued to grow every year.
“Cruise Night has continued to get better each and every year. If people continue to come out and enjoy themselves, it will continue to grow.”
Food vendors and live entertainment were available during the Super Cruise. Food varied from tacos, subs, hot dogs and the Sullivan’s restaurant. The First Christian Church was also selling their delicious homemade ice cream.
With the Threshers event coming up this week, some tractors that will be seen then were also at the Cruise Night. The Wauseon Fire Department also brought out their Aerial Truck and displayed the Stars and Stripes over the midway.
Super Cruises take place between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. with the next one taking place on July 19th and the final one taking place on August 16th. The Cruise Night season will then wrap up for the year on August 30th.
“We want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting us all these years. We look forward to seeing everyone throughout the rest of this year,” said Taylor.
