Drag Races 2023

If you’re a Three Hills newcomer you’re bound to see a change in the traffic this weekend.

It’s Cruise Weekend once again and this should be a banner year based on the weather forecast.

Friday, May 31, 2024 things get rolling at 5 pm with the Annual Meet and Greet coming together on Main Street, Three Hills.

Lunch with Friends is hosting a fundraiser barbeque and live music at the Canada Post corner. At 6:45 pm start your engines and cruise through town and then follow the leader as participants head north to Trochu and then back to Three Hills for even more cruising.

The Three Hills Street Freaks have altered Friday evening's cruise route to accommodate Three Hills Infrastructure upgrades. Cruise will begin on Main Street with the lead car heading east toward Chateau-Three Hills and Anderson Park. The procession will turn right onto 1st Street and head west to 6th Ave where the parade of vehicles will head southbound, past the Three Hills Public School, turning west on 6th Street to the Tennis Courts then North on 1st Ave (Railway) all the way to Kal Tire. Turn east on 2nd St North to the Cruise staging area on the service road at UFA/Bigfoot. The cruise to Trochu will leave from this point, allowing police to control the Highway 21/583 intersection.
