Cruisefest returning to streets of Peebles


Community revs up for second annual turn around town – 

By Patricia Beech – 

Peebles residents are gearing up for the village’s newest, oldest tradition – a night of cruising the town’s main drag.
The second annual Cruisefest is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 9 beginning at 6 p.m.
“Over 180 people have confirmed they’re coming on our Facebook page, and another 180 have confirmed they’re interested,” said organizer R.D. Malcom.
Cruisefest is a multi-generational event bringing Baby Boomers, Generation X-ers, Millenials, and iGens together for a night reminiscent of “American Grafitti” with cars bumper to bumper, engines revving, and music pouring out of open windows.
“Because there were a lot of different age groups at the 80’s style Cruise-In last year, I decided to change the name to Cruisefest to be more inclusive,” says Malcom.
This year a registration booth will be set up along the cruising route.
“We’re asking people to register,” said Malcom, “We’d like to know who shows up and where there from, so just look for the white pop-up tent on Main Street.”
There will also be Cruisefest t-shirts for sale in the registration booth. Anyone wanting to purchase a t-shirt before the event can place an order with Sandie Hanson at the New Image Beauty Salon or with Cortney Spires at Hometown Pizza in Peebles.
Proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go toward the purchase of a new park bench for the village green in the center of town.
Cruisers who work up an appetite can stop by the bus garage parking lot where the Peebles Fire Department will be hosting a fish fry, or pull into Ogden’s Main Street Dairy Bar for their Cruisefest Specials.
While the first Cruisefest was largely a spontaneous event, Malcom and Hanson have had a year to plan for the second go-round.
“We had only two weeks to get everything together last year,” says Malcom. “We’ve had more time to plan this year, so we’re really excited and hoping for a good turnout.”
