22nd Annual Cruisin' Night in Sidney
SIDNEY, Neb. -- 987 The Big Boy and Cheyenne County Country buckled up for the 22nd Annual KSID Cruisin’ Night in downtown Sidney on Friday night.
Drivers cruised Illinois Street in everything from Ford Mustangs to Chevy pickups, and motorcycles to semi-tractor-trailers, while listening to 50s and 60s music on 98.7 FM, 1340 AM and 95.7 FM. Other attendees lined the street and sidewalks to watch vehicles and enjoy treats from area businesses and organizations.
Stephanie Mika, of Sidney, is a cruisin’ night regular.
“I've been coming to cruisin' night for 22 years,” Mika said.
Cary Anthony traveled across the state to Sidney to come honor her father-in-law, Lorin Anthony, who passed away April 13 at age 77. Cary said he loved old cars and cruisin' night was his favorite night.
Lorin graduated High School from Scottsbluff in 1962. When he returned from serving as a submarine tender mechanic in the United States Navy in San Diego and Honolulu, he opened Anthony's Body Shop.
Fox Theatre Owner, John Phillips, began the night with a tribute to Anthony, and LC Crow and John Barr. All of whom were involved in the auto industry one way or another.
Cruisers young and old participated in the event this year. Four high school students drove up and down Illinois Street many times in their pink convertible.
The teenage girls agreed they loved cruisin' night.
