Summer Cruise 2021

June 19, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

We’re excited to announce Summer Cruise 2021, Saturday, June 19th

10:00am

Meet at Pacific Springs Village, in their main parking area. Pacific Springs Village is a retirement community comprised of apartment style buildings and townhomes. Last year they invited us to do a bit of a rolling car show through their campus. This year, we are going back, putting on a short show and parade through the campus before heading out on our cruise.

Cruise leaves 10:45am

We will cruise to Schramm State Park for lunch. After lunch, stop in Louisville for ice cream, and then over to Ashland, then back into Gretna/Omaha. Total driving time is a little over 1 hour, with lunch being approximately half way.

Lunch

We will stop around 11:15am at a picnic shelter at Schramm State Park (state park permit required, can be purchased at the drop box on site or purchased and printed online here: https://ngpc-home.ne.gov/ps/faces/index.xhtml.) These shelters are non-reservable, so if they are full, we will proceed to one of the other 3 state parks on the route. Pack your own lunch and drinks.

Optional Activities

Lunch will be the only scheduled stop, but feel free to break away from the cruise to enjoy any of the other stops along the way. The cruise will go past these attractions (each open, potentially with restrictions):
