If you love cars, contests and comradery, then you’re in luck. The 43rd St. Ignace Car Show Weekend is coming June 28-30. You’ll find all the action in the heart of St. Ignace at North State Street. No matter your vehicle preferences (antique, custom, celebrity), there’s something here for everyone. The show features all makes and all modes of cars and is one of the largest shows of its kind in the country.
The weekend launches with St. Ignace Cruise Night on Thursday. Cars line up at Kewadin Casino at 5pm. Once 6pm rolls around the cruising begins and all winds up on Little Bear East Arena where there will be awards given out. Music and concessions will also be on hand to get everyone revved up for the rest of the weekend.
Who doesn’t love a parade? On Friday night the festivities really kick into high gear with the Down Memory Lane Parade. The event commences at 7pm in the downtown area at the Budget Host Inn and ends at Family Fare grocery store. Aside from the cars, spectators will be treated to eye-catching floats, lively bands, and much more.
On Saturday, the cars will be on full display in the downtown core on State Street all day long. There will be plenty here to check out. Once dusk roll around, spectators will be treated to a fireworks display over Moran Bay. Anyone who wants to register a car for the weekend events can do so now. Registering early is advised, as prices go up closer to the event.
