The Pacific Partnership, a charitable organization, will host the 11th annual Pacific Car Cruise Night Saturday, June 29, from noon to 9 p.m.

Cars, trucks and motorcycles will be displayed on the streets of old Downtown Pacific.

This year’s car cruise night will be hosted by the Ridge Rodders Car Club of Villa Ridge. The show will have 20 judged classes with two chances to win.

The Action Riders of Franklin County, a not-for-profit motorcycle group and a local fund raising organization for people in crisis, will host the motorcycle portion of the show.

The car show will feature Mountain Pearl, a 1953 Ford F-100, which was featured in August 1962 Hot Rod magazine. It also was the first truck featured in full color.

Also featured at Cruise Night will be The Dream Truck, built in the 1950s by a group of car customizers, including George Barris of Batmobile and Munster Koach fame, inspired by Spencer Murray of Rod & Custom magazine.

Both trucks will be on display at Dave Clapper’s Show Me Auto Body, 118 E. Union in Pacific.

The city of Pacific, in conjunction with the Pacific Car Cruise, will host its Independence Day fireworks show from the historic bluffs on Osage Street, which will close the car show at approximately 9:30 p.m.

Live music will be provided throughout the day by Open Fire.

Show activities include attendance prizes, antique gas pump photo booth for car entrants, goodie bags, 50/50 drawings, food, drinks, a Kids Zone and vendor booths.

Craft vendor booths and a cotton candy vendor spots are still available. For vendor information, call April Aubuchon at 314-852-8949.

Local custom car collector and Road Rodders member, Kurt McCormick of Imperial, owns The Dream Truck, which will be on display.
