If you were driving west across the Liberty Bridge and down Midland Street Saturday after work, you may have seen people in lawn chairs waiting patiently on the sides of the road. It you wondered why, the answer is simple. They were waiting for the Cool City Car Show Cruise!

Several hundred antique cars, show cars, and just cool cars, plus a good sampling of trucks, were in Bay City for the annual Cool City Car Show!

Started a dozen years ago by Be Cool Radiators in Essexville, the show is now run as it's own organization and raises money for The American Cancer Society. Since its start the show has raised over $90,000 for the ACS.
