Col Cody’s Cruise Show and Shine
North Platte’s Cody Cruisers Car Club has been hosting the annual Col. Cody’s Cruise Show and Shine in downtown North Platte for more than a decade. This popular event draws classic cars from as far away as Texas and California.
Held each September on the first full weekend after Labor Day, classic car enthusiasts gather on Friday night at the Holiday Inn Express for a BBQ and party. Then, early on Saturday morning (reeeaaallly early – sometimes as early as 5am!), a parade of cars heads downtown where Dewey Street, and 5th and 6th streets are blocked off to display these classic beauties. They are on display until 4pm, with their owners proudly and protectively standing by to receive praise from admirers and answer questions.
Food, craft and automotive vendors line the streets, and entertainment is provided at the intersection of 5th and Dewey. Downtown businesses are ready to welcome you for your shopping pleasure.
Sunday morning they return to the Holiday Inn Express for a church service and awards
