Del Norte Prospector | More cars in Cruisin’ the Canyon than ever before

Creed – Everyone who attended the annual Cruisin’ the Canyon Car Show in Creede this past weekend was treated to a perfect fall day in Colorado. The blue sky seemed to stretch forever over the vines, custom paint, and a crowd of over 500 people.

Main Street was filled with 131 vans, trucks, and unique vehicles of all makes and models.

“People had a really great time. We had the most cars we’ve ever owned, and it was a very nice day,” said event founder Vicki Kollek. Vicki and her husband have been hosting Crusin’ the Canyon Car Show for 14 years, one of which has been during the pandemic. COVID-19.

People roamed from one cool car to another enjoying the beautiful day.

Vicki ran the audience selection booth with the older generations playing in the background.

“Everyone loves our awards and this year, the annual Best of Show award is absolutely amazing,” Kollek said.

Each year, the Best of Show winner receives a specially designed radiant trophy and this year sparkles in the late afternoon sun.

At the north end of Main Street, Creede Arts Council has been busy showcasing local artists at their third annual Steamboat event.

In the months leading up to the auto show, local artists work on creating stamps from one of their pieces which are then coated with black paint and set on a large piece of cloth.

Spectators stood and watched this unique art come to life. Several publications have been sold and all proceeds go to Creede Arts Council and its future events.

Although the trees were still in their summer clothes, the cruise to Freemons was enjoyed later that afternoon. The local favorite burger joint was on the move most of the afternoon while auto show participants and spectators enjoyed hamburgers and said goodbye to summer for another year.
