Sweet Rides and Sweet Pies
is an outdoors event!
so we will be moving forward with something on Saturday, July 25!
Because we will be celebrating the 5th year of our car show, we are hoping you, as a participant or spectator, will come out to see lots of cars.
Plans are in the works and we are praying for good weather!
We know that previous sponsors have had a rough year so we
will not be soliciting sponsors. Donations are greatly appreciated and
if you would like to be a voluntary sponsor, please contact us
with an email using the "Contact Us" tab on this website
or send a message from the Sweet Rides Facebook page.
We will adjust the event details as we get closer to the date,
depending on COVID restrictions or recommendations. We will
practice social distancing by spacing cars to give participants adequate room to sit next to their vehicle while keeping an acceptable distance
from the next participant. Maybe the event will become a car tour through the City of Westby. Masks are appreciated but not required.
Updates will be posted on Facebook so check often!
Please, call our Westby eateries, stay local and give them your business!
While there will be soda, water and chips for purchase at the event,
we will not be selling our usual pies with ice cream. COVID restrictions
of pre-packaging individual servings, the restrictions to use only
commercial kitchens, and common sense tell us that "pies" for this
event, be they dessert or pizza, are better served by local restaurants.
Bleachers Pub, Borgen's Cafe, Nordic Lanes and Westby Rod & Gun
know you will be in town and will accommodate in-house
seating and/or carry-out orders.
This year, registration is free. The online registration form is now
available at: https://form.jotform.com/92058901038153
We are sorry but the Thoreson House Museum will not be open.
The museum rooms, the staircase and the display areas are
tight and do not make social distancing practical.
When it is safe, we will reopen. Thank you for understanding!
