'Cherry' classic cars on display in Pequot Lakes


The seventh annual Cherry Car Show was held Saturday, June 7, at Trailside Park in Pequot Lakes.

The morning began rainy, but the sun began shining by 11 a.m., providing near perfect weather for car-watching. Spectators admired dozens of classic cars from as far back as the 1920s at the event, hosted by the Pequot Lakes/Breezy Point Lions. They also enjoyed food vendors, including the Lions' shish kabobs, and a nearby craft fair.
