There was an emphasis on the word "hot" during Sunday's Independence Block Party & Hot Rod Show. But triple-digit temperatures didn't hinder the 10,000-plus attendees from taking a peek at more than 80 classic cars on display last Sunday.
This year was the five-year anniversary of the family-oriented event, which was filled with activities ranging from an obstacle course and castle bouncer to pony rides personally escorted by an attendant ride around the Shopping Park.
"It was a terrific event," John Drayman, Montrose Shopping Park Association president, said. The highlight of the day was seeing the 90 parked classic cars from the '20s, '30s, '40s and '50s.
