The Mid Ohio Cruisers will be holding their annual Snow Ball Cruise-in at the Marysville Burger King located at US 33/36 this Saturday,  January 21, 2017, from 2-4 pm.

Saturday's forecast is calling for cloudy skies with highs in the upper 50's.  The unusually balmy weather should bring out a few more cars than normal for this event.

I've been to multiple monthly cruise-ins hosted by the Mid Ohio Cruisers, however, this will be my first snow ball cruise-in.  If it holds true to the monthly shows, there will be music from the 50's and 60's, door prizes, 50/50 drawing and 10 awards. Registration is free.

Dress warm and expect a crowded dining area. Hope to see you Saturday.
