Cookin’ car show heats up downtown Osage City Saturday

The Smoke in the Spring barbecue competition fires up at Jones Park on Saturday, April 9, 2016, but the weekend celebration really starts cooking in Osage City’s downtown, where the 12th annual Cruis’n & Cook’n Auto Show will be staged between Fourth and Seventh streets along Market Street. Registration begins at 8 a.m. Saturday and awards presented at 2:30 p.m.

Last year’s car show, which is hosted annually by the Twin Lakes Cruisers and held in conjunction with Smoke in the Spring, attracted about 280 entries, lining Osage City’s downtown with all makes and models of cars, trucks, vans, classic, vintage, street rods, rat rods, muscle cars and motorcycles.

For exhibitors registering the day of the show, registration is open until 11 a.m. at Branine Chevrolet.

Activities planned in conjunction with the car show include Hot Wheels races at 1 p.m.; Ripley’s Ol-Skool Pinstriping, customize your vehicle with pinstriping; Highway Patrol “Convincer”, a hands-on seat belt demonstration; and vehicle photography at the Historical Gilday’s White Eagle Gas Station.
