Classic cars and trucks graced Kent Station along Ramsay Way for the inaugural Cruisin’ Kent car show on a sun-splashed Saturday.

The free exhibition was open to owners to showcase their classic cars, trucks and motorcycles for a nominal registration fee. Proceeds from the event supported the Veterans Educational Transition (VET) Fund at Green River College. The VET Fund helps provide funding to cover tuition gaps for veterans.

The city of Kent and Kent Station co-hosted the event.

Participating car owners were eligible to win trophies for their prized vehicles in a variety of categories. In addition, there were vendor booths, a 50/50 raffle, Cruisin’ Kent T-shirts for sale and a DJ booth.

Sponsors included Bowen Scarff, the Kent Reporter, A-1 Pallets, Inc., and Cindi Cameron of Fairway Mortgage.
