Cruiser Car Show produces record turnout

RAPID CITY, S.D. — The 11th annual Cruiser Car Show brought classic car lovers to Main Street Square in Rapid City Saturday.

Over 180 cars pre-registered for the event in a record turnout.

The event was put on by Main Street Square, the Rapid City Police Department and Fleet Farm Rapid City.

The show brought all kinds of unique cars onto the city’s streets, and offered an opportunity for law enforcement officers to join Rapid City residents for a fun event in the warm fall sunshine.

“A lot of people see us just in our police work and official duties,” said RCPD Special Operations Sergeant Ryan Phillips. “We come out here and interact with the community, and they can see we’re people too. We get out here, we love the cars, we like shaking hands, we love the people in our community and its a good way to do that in not such an official capacity.”

From retro cop cars to classic corvettes, the car show had it all including live music and food.

Residents were able to wander the downtown streets and admire their favorite vehicles.

Every available car spot was filled, and the hearts of enthusiasts filled up, surrounded by a variety of their favorite vehicles.
