Kearney Cruise Nite: Cool Car Carnival


Hilltop Mall has partnered with Kearney Cruise Nite to introduce an all new, FREE KID-FRIENDLY, Cruise Nite Event.

From 9am – 11am July 17th, in the Hilltop Mall Parking Lot, your families can explore the coolest vehicles in town – up close and personal!

Children can climb in the back of police cars, honk the horns of fire trucks, experience the inside of an ambulance and SO much more! Candy will be given out at some participating vehicles, so bring a little baggie and a CAMERA for those picture-perfect moments!

Parents can enjoy a fresh cup of coffee from our friends at The Cup, with their all new coffee truck parked at the event! Even enjoy some trending tunes as you walk the carnival, from our friends at 5 Star entertainment.

View our Facebook event discussion page (https://fb.me/e/5faTYRqFu) for pictures of a very similar event (and where we actually got the inspo for our event) that our good friend Christina put on at Sunset Plaza Mall in Norfolk Nebraska, called the “Big Truck Event”!!
