Cruisin' The Drag brings thousands to downtown Great Falls

Posted: Updated:

Thousand of people gathered in downtown Great Falls on Saturday for Montana's largest outdoor car show, "Cruisin' The Drag."

More than 600 cars lined Central Avenue from 9th Street to the Civic Center for the 18th annual event.

The event was free, but people were encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the Great Falls Community Food Bank.

Auto lovers from Washington, Canada, Idaho, and all over Montana brought their cars, trucks, and motorcycles to show off at the event.

Prizes were awarded in 15 categories, including $250 cash prizes each for best car, truck, and motorcycle in the show.

Judges and attendees strolled past everything from hot rods, rally cars, to rat rods.

One judge said a major focus of his critiquing was the amount of effort that he had perceived the car-owners to have put into their auto-projects.

Matt Moog, a judge for the "Best Import" category, said, “I really just like to see people that have put a lot of time and effort into a car whether it be an import or a domestic car. Put a lot of blood sweat and tears into it, and have spent countless hours working on it. Really want to show it off, show their hard work. I like to see stuff like that.”

There was also a timed tricycle-drifting course for the kids to enjoy at the car show.
