Remember, spectators are free so come out and enjoy the cars and the river. Music will be provided by a DJ on site, so pack a lunch or buy some Black Angus BBQ. If you would like to support the Kinsmen projects there will be a donation bucket a 50/50 draw, the winner of the draw usually takes home close to $250 and there are two door prizes of Samsonite luggage.
