About 250 vehicles were on display in downtown Kincardine for the second Cruise Night of the summer season, Friday evening.
A good crowd came out to see some beautiful vintage cars and trucks and race cars; and the children enjoyed the valve-cover racers, with John Willis of the Drifters Car Club, in charge.
The 50-50 draw, in support of the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation, raised a total of $2,200. Murray Clark of the Greater Millarton Area, east of Kincardine on Highway 9, had the winning ticket and took home $1,100.
