The Friday evening weather was perfect for Kids Night at the August All Wheels Night and Cruisin’ Indy as the clouds cleared, the temperatures were mild and the cars and music were classic. The Past Blasters provided live tunes from the 1960s and beyond as the small crowd wandered Penn Ave., browsing the classic cars and visiting. Children were treated to free face painting and popsicles courtesy of the Independence Chamber of Commerce as well as free glow bracelets. Free giveaways were offered by some businesses also. The American Soda Fountain had walking tacos and a drink available for purchase to those who wanted to fill their bellies. Some downtown shops kept their doors open just in case there were interested shoppers. Most people set up their lawn chairs to visit, listen to the live music, watch the cars go by and enjoy the evening air. The old-school cruise kicked off at 8 p.m. with participating cars driving through downtown Independence to Riverside Park, back to Main Street then west to Sonic Drive-In.
