Ruston Family Fair and Car Show

Plenty of good old-fashioned rag-tag fun was had by all in Ruston this weekend. Saturday was the annual Cadillac LaSalle car show and the first annual Ruston Family Fair. Dozens of classic cars lined up in the grassy median along Winnifred - with the final block dedicated to the fair.

Many Ruston streets saw their first horse and wagon in over a century as riders young and old rode around town. Pets paraded in their best outfits. Bakers brought their glorious creations for judging. Local kids rode their bikes down for the obstacle course set up by the police. Rootbeer floats and popcorn helped raise money for the fire department. Kids played old-fashioned field games. Lucky winners danced away with specialty cupcakes. The Boy Scouts demonstrated their homemade rockets. The Divas got dunked. Food, shopping, fun and plenty of sunshine rounded out the special day.

I was camera-less for the day, so I'll be collecting photos and posting them soon. It was a great start but feedback is appreciated. Please comment with suggestions for improvement. And thanks to everyone for coming down for the party!
