Antique cars, refreshment booths and live entertainment continue to attract patrons to the annual car cruise in downtown Pacific.

Organizers said the 10th annual Cruise Night, held June 9, was a success.

Antique vehicles, polished to a high sheen, lined both sides of St. Louis Street.

The Pacific Partnership revamped the popular event to make it easier for visitors to navigate the exhibits and booths. Volunteers assisted with tickets, traffic and parking.

Former dash plaques were abandoned for cash prizes that were awarded to entries in a 7 p.m. drawing. The $300 winner was Donald Marks, Fenton, who exhibited a 1965 pearl white Chevy Chevelle SS.

The $200 winner was Steve Hires, who showed a 1965 two-tone purple and silver pickup. The $100 winner was Bill Dedeke, St. Louis, who showed a 1964 Chevy Impala.

Many local businesses and groups sponsored the event.
