After holding the first event two weekends ago to support local businesses and restaurants, a second Cruise Night took place on Saturday night. The Rotary Club of Ogallala was out front of Slow Lane Coffee collecting donations to be donated to Ogallala Keith County Food Pantry.

While these Cruise Night have been taking place throughout the entire state and have been a great way for local businesses to be supported, it has even allowed a local man to turn his hobby into a business.

Austyn Dupeire of Ogallala has been using his drone to take overhead shots of Ogallala during these events. It was something he started doing for fun, but over the years has turned into something bigger.

"It just kind of started off as a hobby, as time goes on, more and more people just kept calling and have different ideas," said Dupeire, when asked about how he got started with the job.
