Burnout back on Main

The popular burnout portion of this year’s Summer Stomp and Burnout, July 16 to 19, has been moved back to Main Street.

Tires will once again be smoking downtown.

The popular burnout portion of this year’s Summer Stomp and Burnout, July 16 to 19, has been moved back to Main Street.

Mayor Terry Rysz confirms the burnout event has been moved back downtown from the Summer Stomp grounds at the municipal dog park where it was to occur.

In past years, the burnout has been held on the west end of Main Street. Rysz says concerns about the event prompted the district and organizers to move the burnout to the Stomp grounds.

“What we’re going to do is, because there’s been some concerns regarding the smoke and whatever else, we’re going to move that part of the show on Main Street to the far east end, more in front of the old jail… away from the other vendors down at the bottom side,” said Rysz, adding one of the biggest concerns had to do with marks being left on the street. “You know they wash off eventually.

“No matter how we do this, it seems there’s not a real right model. But at the same time, it’s all about entertainment and trying to put an event on for the community and I think we’re going to do the very best we can along with the organizer of the Stomp.”

The burnout is traditionally part of the day of “family-friendly” events, this year being held on Saturday, July 18.

The day will also include stunt jumpers and riders and live entertainment including bands Bender, Breaking Curfew and Shoe Swap.
