|Welcome to the official Ghent Cruiser's website! |
The Ghent Cruisers are a group of classic car and
street rod enthusiasts from the Ghent, Minnesota area.
We enjoy showing our vehicles by attending area car shows and cruising around southwest Minnesota.
The Ghent Cruisers sponsor the Ghent Belgian-American Days Car Show held during Belgian-American Days which is always the first weekend in August. This year, the 11th annual car show will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2017.
We begin our show with the Belgian National Anthem and then the United States of America National Anthem. We are hoping for another good turnout of vehicles including cars, trucks, motorcycles, tractors, and rat rods. We have goody bays, dash plaques, trivia contest and delicious food. Once again Mylan Ray of KISD will be our DJ and anouncer playing his "Car-tunes". We will feature our own custom-made Piston Awards made from a used piston which is powder coated and then mounted on an oak base. We will have trophies for the top sixteen cars and also tractor, motorcycle, truck and rat rod awards. We will also give awards for People's Choice, Mayor's Choice, and of course, Best of Show. Since this year is the 65th year of celebrating Belgain-American Days, we will honor all 1965 vehicles with a special class and an award for the favorite vehicle.
Once again, we are hoping for perfect weather for the spectators and participants alike to enjoy the shady street, good food, fabulous door prizes, wonderful 50's and 60's music, trivia questions, and great comradery with other car enthusiasts.
Pictures of past car shows can be found in the image gallery under car show pics.
