The all-day drizzle on Saturday washed out my original plans to attend the 10th Annual Coughlin Car Show in Pataskala, Ohio. Fortunately, the rain moved out of the area  just in time to bring nice weather for the shows scheduled on Sunday and Labor Day.

RIVER CAR RALLY CRUISE IN

Despite wet roads early Sunday morning, I made the drive to The River Church In A Barn Car Rally Cruise In. The church is located a few miles north of Delaware, Ohio on Rt. 42.

This is the 15th year the church has held
the rally cruise-in on the first Sunday of September.  It's also my third year participating in the event.

The cruise-in offered free registration, hot dogs, popcorn and sno-cones. Sunday
Service at 10AM was open to anyone wishing to attend.  Anyone registering an automobile was automatically entered to win a nice selection of door prizes.  Raffle tickets could also be purchased to win a 13 drawer tool chest. All donations benefitted the Orphan Outreach program.

New this year was a ragtime band providing "live" entertainment.

I think the early morning wet roads caused attendance to be down a little from previous years.  Only 53 automobiles and eight motorcycles turned out for this year's rally.
