Visit Enterprise, partner of the Enterprise Chamber of Commerce, is asking for citizen participation during a special event held in conjunction with the Rand McNally/USA Today "Best of the Road" Competition visit late next week. Enterprise has been selected as a finalist in this annual national competition, and is the first city in Alabama to be recognized by the Rand McNally/USA Today Competition.
Tourism officials are asking all citizens of Enterprise to show their patriotism and spirit by visiting Downtown Enterprise on Thursday, June 28th, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. During this time frame, citizens are asked to line the sidewalks of Downtown Enterprise, on Main Street, for a patriotic classic car cruise-in, organized by the Weevil City Cruisers and Milky Moo's of Enterprise.
"We will be cruising onto East College Street, and parking near Milky Moo's starting at 5:00 PM," Weevil City Cruisers organizer Don Doherty explains, "After showing our patriotic cars, we plan on having a parade running North to South on Main Street starting at 7:00 PM. We invite the public to attend."
"This even is a great way for the citizens of Enterprise and the surrounding communities to come out and celebrate our status as being one of the finalists in the category of Most Patriotic Towns in the US," states Christy Elmore, Tourism Director for Visit Enterprise, "We look forward to celebrating with the road crew during this special time, and encourage citizen participation during the cruise-in and parade."
Along with the cruise-in, Milky Moo's will have special patriotic ice cream sundaes, and patriotic themed ice cream for the evening's event. Many other Downtown Enterprise businesses will be open for extra hours, and invite you to shop. Southern Broadway will present a limited engagement encore of their "Song of My Heart" production with dessert only. Tickets are currently still available, and the play will have local officials and the Best of the Road team in attendance.
Citizens who want to participate in the cruise-in and parade are asked to show their patriotism by dressing in red, white, and blue. During the cruise-in and parade, the Best of the Road team will be visiting with citizens, and may be video-taped or photographed to be used by local and national media.
Tourism officials also remind citizens that the roads in Downtown Enterprise will not be blocked off for the parade, and the parade will work into regular traffic patterns on Main Street.
