Buggies-N-Blues Draws Thousands

Posted: Updated:
Main St. in Mandan was packed with traffic today, but the cars there weren't ones you would see in a normal rush hour jam. 

Mandan's annual Buggies And Blues Car Show merges classic cars and classic tunes for a fun packed day. With 480 cars, visitors had a lot to look at, and if you needed a break, you could catch a song by one of the live bands. Organizers say these options are what makes the day so popular.

"People love looking at old cars, the event is family oriented, and it costs nothing to come down and look at the cars. It costs nothing to sit in the park and listen to music, and if you want to buy food or beverages that's the cost you have," says co-chairman Vernon Cermak. 

Cermak says he estimates about 25,000 to 30,000 people attended the five-hour show.
