Mother Nature pushed away the clouds making Saturday’s Queen City Cruise another success as crowds flocked to the annual Show n’ Shine on Baker Street sponsored by the Nelson Road Kings.

The annual Road Kings Queen City Cruise was once again a hit with most vehicles participating from throughout BC, Washington State, Idaho and Alberta.

Vehicles owners began descending on the Heritage City Friday afternoon during a sprinkle of rain for registration at the Nelson Chamber of Commerce in Railtown and the parade through the downtown core to the Nelson Bridge.

Following the parade there was a street dance in the Hall Street Plaza with a crowd of a few hundred attending.

Early Saturday morning, vehicles began arriving on Baker Street shortly after 6 a.m.

Along with vehicles, there was a poker run and numerous vendors and food outlets making the day another amazing success.

Last count almost 400 entrants attended the event.

Baker Street was filled with spectators and cars during Saturday's Show n' Shine.

Friday, cars lined the Chamber of Commerce parking lot during registration.

Nelson Road Kings Jim Thast was busy Saturday judging all the entrants.

There was more to see than just cars as this Harley Davidson display attracted plenty of interest.

Rain from Friday turned to sunshine Saturday as spectators thoroughly enjoyed the 2019 Nelson Road Kings Queen City Cruise.
