Auto shows in America are part of what make the fabric of our culture just as the red, white and blue colors of our flag. One major show that attracts folks from all over Northeast Florida is the Annual Cruisin to the Creek show supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville, which took place today marking its 29th year and second year in its new location at the Trout Creek Fish Camp.
Hosted by the First Coast Car Council, Inc., the show consist of over 30 car clubs in Northeast Florida working together to put on an unforgettable show. 2014 marked the first year of holding the show at the Trout Creek Fish Camp, which has proven to be an excellent choice. This year there were over 320 show cars in attendance with a wide variety ranging from classic and modern Corvettes, Mustangs and Camaros, to everything-Mopar and several select one-off treats. The images below show it all.
