Cruise-In And Open Header Cruise

The Cruise-In Celebration started the festivities on Friday night. Everyone enjoyed the great food, DJ music from Sunset Coast Entertainment and lots of show vehicles. The Open Header Cruise started at Great Lakes Antiques Mall in Coloma and ended at Lane Automotive. The route worked well, and the a large number of cars participated. The open header cruisers roared through downtown Coloma and Watervliet then joined the Cruise-In Celebration.
