Cruise Nights and Business Friendly in Lombard
The Village of Lombard is asking Cruise Nights attendees to make sure they do not park in businesses designated parking spots or block the entrances to local businesses. Cruise Nights volunteers will be walking around during the event to help make sure cruisers are respectful of businesses that remain open during the event. Thank you!

Cruise Nights seeking volunteers
The Village is also seeking additional volunteers for its 18th anniversary season. Since Cruise Nights’ inception, dedicated volunteers have helped the Village with the event. The Village is looking to expand its volunteer base in order to make sure Downtown Lombard stays clean, attendees don’t block entrances to open businesses and cruise cars park legally in the Downtown. To volunteer at any of the summer’s Cruise Nights, email the Village of Lombard Communications Coordinator.
