With Ronnie Kaye of KOMA rockin’ the show with his mobile music machine, and car enthusiasts and their rods and rides parked in the City Park paved lot, skies cleared and stayed dry for the Fourth of July events in Yukon.

Freedom Fest is underway with a children’s parade Saturday and Car Show at City Park on S. Holly Ave.

Patricia Stafford of Lawton and Tony Migneault, of Mustang stood in front of a restored 1949 Ford Business Coupe with the original motor and only 60,000 miles on it.

“It came from New York and I’ve been rebuilding it for 10 years,” Migneault said.

Other car owners entered their coveted rods in the car show sponsored by the Mustang Thursday Night Cruisers with President Jeff Kelley, and Vice President Shawn Tidwell of the club.

“It’s going great. There are a lot of car shows today, so we are facing a lot of competition, but the crowd turned out. We got a really good turnout. There are 90 cars. We have really good weather, the temperatures are right, great music, super food and a great crowd,” Kelley said. “We’re honored to be here on behalf of the City of Yukon to participate in this and have our club participate in this show.”

Live music is scheduled for the evening and fireworks at dusk Saturday and Sunday night.
