Believe it or not, but there have been Fourth of July car shows without rain. 2017 was not one of them.

The annual show was at Campbellsville University but just down the street from where cars have gathered for the last several years. A major camp was using the area where cars have normally parked.

The move may have worked out for the best since all of the parking was on asphalt and rain was not an issue. Not an issue as far as parking. There were sporadic showers throughout the day and a few probably stayed home because of the rain.

There were just more than 50 cars at this year's show.

Monthly cruises in Campbellsville, Ky. were rained out in April and May, But partly cloudy skies and low humidity enabled the cruise on June 2 to go on as planned.

The cruise is no longer on Main Street. It is on First Street between Columbia Avenue and Court Street.

The cruise is next to the old courthouse and has easy access via a short alleyway to Main Street and Brothers Restaurant. Just across Columbia Avenue is the only remaining Druther's Restaurant in the country.

The cruises are from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

There will be no cruise  in July due to the annual Independence Day car show on July 4. Back to the '50s Night in August 4. First Responders Night is September 8. There will be no cruise in October due to the Homecoming Car Cruise at Campbellsville University on Oct. 6.

The Tri-County Car Club was formed on June 8, 1986 to encourage the preservation, collection and exhibition of classic and custom cars and trucks.


The club originally consisted of members from Taylor, Marion and Adair counties in Kentucky. It now has members from many counties.

Members meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Bible Baptist Tabernacle, 105 50 Bambi Drive in Campbellsville.

Each year the club sponsors a monthly cruise during the summer and a car show on the

Fourth of July.

It also assists Campbellsville University with a

Homecoming Car Cruise.
