The Board of Directors of the Berrien County Youth Fair have announced plans for their first annual cruise in. Slated for Saturday, May 29, 2021 from 10 am to 4 pm, car enthusiasts should expect to see a variety of car classes that include: newer cars, older cars, rat rods, muscle cars, restored cars and a class of SUVs, trucks and vans. Entrance into the event for spectators will be free. Those wishing to participate in the cruise in will pay a $25 entry fee to be placed in the running for the People’s Choice and Overall Winner prizes. In addition, participants will pay a $5 per class fee for individual classes. All cruise in participants will receive a gift from BCYF. Awards for each class, overall winner and people’s choice award will be presented at the end of the day.
With the recent elimination of notable car shows in the area, the Berrien County Youth Fair is hoping to help fill a void. Put on by the Berrien County Youth Fair fundraising committee and board of directors, all profits from the event will go toward BCYF operations. Without having a Fair in 2020, the BCYF lost over 85% of its yearly revenue and the profits will help sustain the organization.
