This weekend in Joseph Oregon over 200 classic cars descended for the Oregon Mountain Cruise Car Show, despite the rain! After finishing our innkeeping chores, Bill & I played a little afternoon hookey and toured the cars parked on Main Street in Joseph.
Frankly, the cool weather would be wonderful for an Eastern Oregon vacation--sometimes the Oregon Mountain Cruise Car Show takes place in 100 degree heat!
The Oregon Mountain Cruise always takes place the second weekend in June--following the Wallowa Valley Festival of Arts (first weekend in June) and just ahead of the Mountain High Broncs and Bulls (third weekend in June).
This year, two of our guests entered their cars in the Oregon Mountain Cruise. We don't know who'll win King of the Mountain but certainly hope they have a good chance!
One set of our guests we previously blogged about--Holton Secret Lab owned by Bill and Marcy Holton. They brought in two cars themselves, plus three additional cars they'd restored came for the show too. Great looking cars and wonderful guests. They'll be back next year.
Speaking of next year, the Oregon Mountain Cruise is always the second weekend in June. If you're thinking about coming in 2010, it's not too early to think about booking your reservation. Joseph Oregon lodging and Wallowa Lake lodging both sell out quickly on event weekends. Give us a call or book your reservation soon if you're thinking about staying here in Joseph Oregon.
