Despite a heavy downpour Friday afternoon, the sky cleared and a good crowd turned out that evening for the first Cruise Night of the summer in downtown Kincardine.

There were fewer cars than normal, organizers said, but hundreds of people enjoyed "cruising" through the many vintage, rebuilt and strange-looking vehicles.

Leading the strange-looking category was a 1928 Model A Ford, called the "Everything Parade Car," owned by Don McNeil of Brussels.

Volunteers with the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation were on hand, selling 50-50 tickets, as well as tickets to the Third Hospital Lottery which has a cash prize of $25,000, and a prize board worth $35,000.

Tickets are $25 each or five for $100; available at:
  • Kincardine hospital, 519-396- 3331, Ext. 4342
  • Jerome Flowers and Gifts, 760 Queen St, Kincardine
  • Foundation members: Jack Nancekivell, Gregg McClelland, Norie Dickson, Brenda Bateman, Jennifer Cook, Dianne MacArthur, Kaye MacDonald, Graham Mahood, Mary Hall, Jim Bagshaw, Lois Hackett
  • At various community events, such as Cruise Nights
