Start your engines! Breakfast is back at Kiwanis Cruise-in posted on 07/01/2019

The scent of fresh pancakes will return to the 62nd annual Kiwanis Cruise-in after a year without the community-pleasing brunch due to a relocation of the long-running car show.

The event, formerly the Fly-in Cruise-In, is the Sandy Kiwanis club’s biggest fundraising event of the year. The Cruise-In will be held rain or shine, Sunday, July 21 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hull Park and Retreat Center for the Blind and Low Vision, 43233 SE Oral Hull Park Road, Sandy.

“All the proceeds stay in the community,” club president Mike Pickett said. He added the club helps support 12 nonprofits in the Sandy community. Proceeds from the Cruise-In help fund five $1,000 scholarships for graduating seniors.

“The response is fantastic, the community really looks forward to it,” Pickett said about the car show and breakfast. The event is the last car show in Sandy with an estimated 250 to 300 cars competing in 27 categories. The event is open to the public and free to spectators.

There is a $15 registration fee per car and dash plaques are given out to the first 200 registrants. Plaques and trophies are sponsored by local Sandy businesses with awards for 27 classes of vehicles, Kiwanis President’s Choice and an Over-all Show Winner picked by a five-member committee.

Classes of cars range from classic cars from the 30s and 40s to motorcycles, muscle cars, trucks and the eclectic barn-find category. Pickett stated there will be an antique flat-bed semi logging truck at the show.

The pancake breakfast is $8 per adult and offers pancakes, scrambled eggs and ham. Breakfast will be served until noon with a snack shack serving additional offerings until one.

The event will return to Oral Hull park with some proceeds of the show going to benefit the Oral Hull Foundation. The Cruise-in was relocated to the park after the Fly-in airplane portion of the show was discontinued in 2018 due to insurance issues.

Pickett stated the move allowed the club to reexamine and improve the car show.

“We asked, how do we do this to make it even better, and I think we did,” Pickett said about the new location’s benefit to a local charity.
