Get ready to burn some rubber at the annual Three Hills Cruise Weekend

Question. Is it a good thing to be called a “Street Freak?” It sure is if you’re heading to the Three Hills Cruise Weekend, June 1 to 3. This auto enthusiasts’ weekend is the largest in Western Canada and has been held since 1981. Back then a few cars laid down some rubber at the first Street Freaks Cruise Nite. Since then, it’s expanded to whole weekend, taking over the entire town.  Show and Shines, cruising main street, auto vendors, drag races at the airport and supporting the community are all part of the motor-centric fun. 

Expect to be among more than 8,000 people at the Three Hills Cruise Weekend.  Spectators will be lined up on the bleachers to watch the races, or stroll the rows of gleaming metal at the show and shine hosted by the Three Hills Street Freaks auto club. The eye candy will include classic cars and trucks, classics, hot rods, rat rods, retro rods and trailer. Brett “Big Schwag” Wagner of Monster Garage will be there to entertain the crowds, too. 

You might want to bring your earplugs for the Bracket Racing. It’s guaranteed be fast and loud! And, if you’ve got a street legal vehicle that you want to race, bring it along. The weekend race is open to all kinds of vehicles, including a minivan. 

The community of Three Hills happily supplies the food and beverages to the hungry crowds. Be sure to start your Saturday morning at the Knox United Church for the Hearty Cruise Day Breakfast.
