Homecoming Car Cruise is Oct. 28
Believe it or not, but there have been Fourth of July car shows without rain. This year 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.

ABOUT THE CLUB
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.
Look for details about all of those on this website.
A book about the history of the Tri-County Car Club is available at http://www.blurb.com/b/5174116-tri-county-car-club-a-pictorial-history.
There is nothing better than a car cruise in autumn. So why not come to Campbellsville University on Saturday, Oct. 28 for the annual Homecoming Car Cruise. This is the 25th anniversary of the cruise.
It will also be the last year for diecast cars as awards to participants. There will be awards next year, just not diecast cars. See details here.
Since this is Campbellsville's Bicentennial, a special effort is being made to recruit cars and trucks of all makes, models and years for the annual parade which begins at 11 a.m..
The Parade of the Centuries, as the caravan of vehicles is being called, will feature as many cars and trucks of all years as possible. The oldest vehicles will go first followed in chronological order so spectators can see how they have changed over the decades.
Participants will receive a very special dash plaque. And you won't miss the car cruise because the parade ends at the university. Click here for more information.
