The 10th anniversary Cruisin’ the Market Show and Shine was held in downtown Swift Current, Sept. 11.

The event has become a popular annual tradition at Market Square. Rainy weather deterred some vehicle owners from bringing out their vehicles, and the number of registered entries were lower than usual at 52.

The weather did not dampen the enthusiasm of participants and those who came to the show to take a look at the variety of cars, trucks and motorcycles from different eras. The category winners were:
