WEST FARGO — West Fargo's July Cruise Night (July 16), and Night to Unite (Aug. 4) are canceled due to national and state recommendations to limit gathering sizes to minimize the spread of coronavirus.

The North Dakota Smart Restart large gathering guidelines strongly recommend limiting gathering sizes to 500 and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that overall number of attendees and density of attendees are critical factors for determining the safety of an event.

Typically, Cruise Nights and Night to Unite see thousands of attendees where crowds often become dense. Because the intention of both events is to provide a free, community event to the public, limiting attendance and proximity to attendees is not possible.

The West Fargo Police Department urges everyone to continue to celebrate Night to Unite with block parties in their neighborhoods if they feel comfortable.

The police department will send officers to block parties by request to interact in small groups throughout the evening of Aug. 4. More information on how to register block parties will be released at a later date.
