Cruise and Fall Market

By Nicole Tull

Cruisin’ in Grand Cane boasted of over seventy vehicles being shown on Saturday morning. Both sides of front street were lined. There were muscle cars, family cars, pick-up trucks and jeeps. Hoods were opened to reveal the inner workings of these show pieces. Original and restored cars were proudly displayed.

John Perkins of Coushatta took the top trophy for his beautiful 1953 Chevy pickup.  The same truck was selected as the best of show at the last Cruisin’ in Grand Cane event in 2019.

People came out in support of the car show and the Fall Market. Vendors continued down front street beyond the cars. Handcrafted items of pottery, crafts, and honey could be found under the pop-up tents. There was live music to offer peppy ambience and pleasant weather for strolling.

Jann Franklin, a local author, could be found in 4C Coffee House signing her newly released second book in her Home Town Girl series. “Shining Stars and Mason Jars” is a quaint read about a gal’s experiences in a smaller town after living in a big city.
