Organizers are so thrilled with the turnout for this weekend's inaugural Jeep Cruise-in event, presented by Main Street of Hope, which brought more than four dozen Jeeps and hundreds of visitors to the Town Square Saturday afternoon, that plans are already underway for a big return in 2023.

Matt Lee, executive director of Main Street of Hope, says if the success of this event is any indicator, then next year is going to be even better.

"[The] first year of any event is basically a tryout to see if the community would like an event [such as this] and support it," Lee says. "So, next year we will look at what we did right and tweak it to make [the] 2023 Jeep event bigger."

The winner of the Main Street of Hope Choice trophy was Dale Kremm, who won with his 2015 Jeep Wrangler.

In addition to acknowledging the outstanding performances offered by featured band Oddz R and opening act Scot Schrader, Lee extends his gratitude and "a BIG Thank You" to everyone who volunteered their time and talents to help make this event a success.
