  • Please be careful and responsible. Our number one concern is to provide a safe, fun event for everyone.  There will be zero tolerance regarding reckless driving during the cruise.  Burnouts, flame throwing, improper starts, tire squealing and hot rodding will cause you to be removed from the cruise and/or the event.  Due to recent accidents, and fatalities, police will be enforcing this rule.  If we are to continue offering a cruise option, it is mandatory that you please refrain from any reckless driving.  Anything brought into the event is subject to search by event and emergency management staff.There will also be LPD K9 officers onsite to monitor and maintain safety of all attendees.

  • In case of an emergency, please call 911 or the Lafayette Police Dept. at  765-807-1200. Please alert the festival Command Center if possible or any person with a radio and wearing an event shirt.


  • City ordinance does not permit anyone to carry in their own alcohol regardless of the container (coolers, cans or cups, etc.).  Please refrain from carrying in alcohol in your vehicles or on your person(s).  The festival will have food and beverage vendors.


  • Award winners will be posted at Command Center at the conclusion of the cruise.  If you win a cash prize or plaque, please bring your windshield card and photo ID to Command Center to claim your award.
