Event Details

One of the premier car shows in the Midwest, the Old Marais River Run gets bigger every year.

The event begins on Friday evening with an open cruise at Forest Park, giving those who do not meet the 1972 cut-off, the opportunity to be a part of the activities. Saturday is the show and shine portion followed by a 1960s profile cruise in the downtown business district during the event, allowing the throngs of spectators to actually see and hear the show vehicles in motion. Sunday returns to the park and a continuation of the show and shine. A church service is offered for those who wish to attend. The day is capped-off by the awards presentation and the announcement of the major door prize winners.
