Willard Hosting “Cruise the Highline” This Saturday

The city of Willard will have hundreds of classic cars roaring up and down the streets to “Cruise the Highline.”

Willard created the event because of the people behind the Street Machine Nationals decided to no longer bring their event to Springfield. Willard Fire Chief Kenny Scott, a fan of the event and the “impromptu cruising” that would take place on North Glenstone after the Nationals’ daily events, spoke to city officials about starting a similar event in Willard.

The event will start Saturday at noon with a “Show-N-Shine” in the parking lot of Willard Middle School. At 4 p.m. the official “show” portion of the event will close and all cars in the event will be able to “cruise” on a closed circuit until 8 p.m.

The cost to enter the event is $10 and all proceeds will benefit the Willard Children’s Charitable Foundation.

If you would like to enter or need more information, contact Kenny Scott at 417-861-6281 or visit the event’s Facebook page.
