The 3rd Annual Cruisin’ for the Kids Cruise Night in Nauvoo on July 3, 2015 from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. It will be held in the upper level of the Nauvoo parking garage, located on the corner of Mulholland and Bluff Streets. A fireworks show will follow the event at approximately 9:30 p.m. The fireworks show is a joint effort between the City of Nauvoo, Illinois and the City of Montrose, Iowa.

The entry for this cruise night is free, and is open to all ages. The cruise night will feature a special area for entrants younger than 21 years of age. To further highlight young entrants, a special award will be handed out to that age group. Other prizes and awards and activities will be offered.

Cruisin’ for the Kids is being planned to raise awareness for the Festival on Wheels Scholarship Fund and build an interest in the world of hot rods. The money used for the annual scholarship comes from an auction of hand painted and pinstriped art that is held at the Festival on Wheels Car Show on Labor Day Weekend. The unique art is produced by several artists that display their talents at the Labor Day weekend event. Thus far, the group has been able to help three area high school seniors further their education in an automotive program following high school graduation.
