WORTHINGTON — Hop in the car and make a pit stop to 10th Street on Tuesday for the annual Cruisin’ Downtown Worthington event.

From 5 to 7 p.m., classic cars from the region will line the street. There will be live music by local group Daisy Chain, burgers from the Rock-Nobles Cattlemen’s, fresh produce from the Worthington Farmers Market and back-to-school deals from local businesses.

Mick Eggers of Mick’s Repair will be one of the many people showing off classic cars. Folks who pass by Egger’s cars Tuesday can expect to see 1939 and 1936 Chevys, a 2014 Corvette Stingray and possibly a 1967 Camaro.

More than 50 cars were part of the events last year, and Eggers said that he usually brings four or five cars to the show.

“My sons also bring a couple of their cars down as well, and we usually don’t do a lot of car shows, but we like to do the local ones,” Eggers said. 

Cars have always been a passion for Eggers, and some of the cars he owns he has had for more than 20 years. 

“The 1936 Chevy I bought in 1969 and rebuilt and restored it, and the 1939 Chevy I’ve had for about 10 years,” he said. 

Cars are not the only thing to see on 10th Street. There will also be tractors, fire trucks and motorcycles featured. 

“It’s nice that guys bring their tractors and other things down — it gives something different for people to look at,” Eggers said. 

While taking a look at all the cars, Eggers said his favorite part is visiting with people. 

“It’s nice to see all the other cars that are there, and to chat with people —that’s what makes it fun,” Eggers said. 

Attendees can also get prepped for King Turkey Day by purchasing wristbands, and folks can even see the big turkey. There will be a farmer’s market from 4 to 7 p.m., with the rest of the event beginning at 5 p.m. 

For more information or to reserve a spot for the car show, contact the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce at 372-2919.
