North Mankato car show cancelled due to business complaints 18 Apr 17

A North Mankato car show has been cancelled after businesses complained the even negatively affected business. Bumpers on Belgrade ran each Thursday last August and September and the event drew 600-800 people with as many as 200 cars per event. Yet several businesses complained that when the 200 and 300 block of Belgrade Avenue closed from 4:30-8 p.m. it negatively affected their business. Organizer of Bumpers on Belgrade Larry Hanson cancelled the event Monday night because of tensions between organizers and several businesses who opposed the event.
