Kruise-in for Kids is returning Saturday, April 2. 

McMinnville’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen has approved Kids of the Community’s Kruise-in for Kids organized by Blaine Wilcher to be held at Farmers Market. 

“This is a letter from County Commissioner Blaine Wilcher,” said Mayor Ryle Chastain. “Like in the past, he’s asking for a key or to have the bathrooms at the pavilion unlocked during the event.”

Kruise-in for Kids is offered on the first Saturday of the month, from April to October, from 5 to 8 p.m. 

The cruise-in operates on donations only. There is no charge for the event. Traditionally, dash plaques have been given to participants willing to show off their car, truck or motorcycle. 

All money raised goes to the Kids of the Community, a community-based, entirely volunteer 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the ideal that all the children in our community have the right to be important, the right to be recognized, and the right to learn fundamental core values from responsible adults.

Because Kruise-in for Kids has been an annual event since 2016, Board of Mayor and Aldermen members provided unanimous approval for its use of the Farmers Market parking lot and pavilion bathrooms.
