It was almost a rite of passage into adulthood, if you just got your driver’s license, chances are you and your friends were cruising Queen Friday night to “check out stock” or go for coffee at any number of diners along the strip between East and Dennis streets decades ago in Sault Ste. Marie.
Friday kicked off the inaugural Queen Street Cruise festival celebrating a past time before cell phones, computers and social media, parking at the gardens and meeting up with friends while checking the street as friends revved their engines.
Along with live entertainment venues at March Street and at the Essar Centre, young and old took in a show and shine car show and the festival continues Saturday with the Heart and Stroke car show runs from 11 am to 3 pm. All day long with live entertainment.
At 3:30 pm the party moves to the Machine Shop at the former St. Mary’s site where live entertainment and food will take you to the grand finale at midnight. Check SaultOnline.com for more coverage Saturday!
