Oracle- The 28th Annual Oracle Spring Run Car show, which took place during the Oracle Oaks Festival, followed the ever-popular time-honored formula of a car show, parade, swap meet, craft fair and book sale.

Throughout the event, a food booth served up tasty burros, BBQ sandwiches and cool, refreshing drinks. The car parade ran through Oracle, starting at 9:30 a’m., ending at the Pinal County Courthouse Park where trophies were awarded.

“Due to the threat of rain, we finished giving out the last award at 1 p.m. and the rain started at 1:15 p/m. We had about 25 pre-registered cars not show because of the weather, but ended up with 102 cars sticking it out.” said Margaret Guyton.
