SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – The Super Cruise is back this weekend in Salem.
The Super Cruise is a four-day event and began on Thursday with food, entertainment and classic cars.
On Saturday, people gathered to show off their vintage and unique cars, including the first place car for the Indy 500.
Hundreds of cars are expected to participate in the event.
One of the organizers, Gene Johnson, says that for many, the classic cars bring back childhood memories.
“It’s four days of fun. We have all kinds of events for anybody and all. We have everything from craft vendor shows, car shows, race car displays. We have something for everybody,” Johnson said.
The Super Cruise wrapped up Sunday with the main event running from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Hundreds of vintage and unique cars were lined up, many of them specially made, for the Show and Shine car show that started at 11 a.m.
Awards were also handed out Sunday, and there was a raffle to win $500 worth of pork. The winner of the four-day 50/50 drawing was chosen Sunday.
Christina Langen & House Party Band performed on the main stage at noon.
“The music from the 50s, 60s and 70s was always, I think, your best music that was ever made in that era. Also the cars for muscle cars and stuff was the 50s, 60s and 70s also,” Johnson said.
Also at noon, craft vendors were set up on South Broadway. Earlier in the day, there was a Valve Cover Racing event.
“That’s something new we started in 2019 so it’s really a growing event,” Johnson said.
Events were scattered all over the city of Salem for the whole family to enjoy.
