Car show coming to Yale on Saturday

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Yale Police Department will play host to the second annual Yale’s Sizzlin’ Summer Cruz N from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Yale Police Chief Philip Keeling said this year’s event will be about “30 times bigger” than the 2011 inaugural show.

“Last year, we had about 34 entries. This year we expect over 200,” he said.     

This year’s show has expanded to include cars, trucks, motorcycles and tractors.

Thirty-eight trophies will be awarded to the highest scoring entrants.

The car show will be a fun event for not only car enthusiasts, but for families as well.

Keeling said they worked hard to make this year’s event family friendly.

“We really made it a great event this year,” he said. “We wanted it to be an event that kids could come and enjoy themselves.”

Attractions include the Kansas City Chiefs cheerleaders, Oklahoma Highway Patrol DUI and rollover simulators, bounce houses, mini-car rides given by the Shriners, helicopter rides provided by Tulsa Helicopter, live bands, Oklahoma National Guard rock wall climb, Huffy the Firefighter Clown, water slides, pony rides and face painting.

The event will also feature the Yale Fire Department dunk tank and the 501st Legion Star Wars characters.

Snow cones, ice cream, roasted nuts and numerous other food items will be available. More than 30 different vendors will be set up, including T-shirt tattooing and back and foot massage.

During the car show, more than 100 door prizes will be given away including a 55-inch TV, Kindle Fire, barbecue grill, and a skydive jump.

The car show is free, but there is a $15 fee for car entrants.
