Saturday, July 30, will be a busy fun-filled day in the Borough of Kutztown.
Start the day off at the annual Kutztown Kruizz car show on Main Street from noon to 4 p.m.
One of the fasted growing car events in the region, the Kruizz annually attracts more than 250 cars and several thousand spectators. Hosted by Kutztown Strong, a local charitable non-profit, proceeds benefit programs and activities that support the behavioral health and wellbeing of local children, youth and families.
Shake, Rattle and Soul will perform oldies music on the Main Street Stage. Local artist Miriam Clancey will perform on the Uptown Stage and Young Ones Records will present an in-store concert.
There will be children’s art areas at Kutztown Printing, Local Folks Creative Studio and Paradise Lost. Boy Scouts will have Kruizz related activities for children, too. City Cuts Barber Shop will offer free haircuts on Main Street. Visitors can vote for the People’s and Kids Trophies. Participating businesses will also choose their favorite cars. Kutztown Mayor Jim Schlegel will present the Mayor’s trophy. There will be a 50/50 raffle as well as door prizes awarded to the drivers.
