ALBION – There were about 30 classic cars for the kick off of Albion’s new Canalside Cruise Night.

The event continues on Saturday evenings through Aug. 26, with the big cruise on July 22 when Main Street will be closed off for the cars.

Mayor Dean London said the event had a good start. He helped sell refreshments by the fire hall.

This 1956 Chevrolet was parked by the canal for the cruise.

A 1952 Chevy 3100 attracted some attention at the cruise in. Danny Marek owns the vehicle. Marek, right in back, talks about the old truck with Dan DeCarlo, left, and Skip Stratton.
