An annual tradition continued Saturday in downtown Waterloo.
The Fourth Street Cruise took to the streets with a record number of cars.
The cruise has grown each year for 31 years.
"This is our 31st year doing this event. It keeps growing bigger and bigger every year. We'll see upward around probably 1200 cars here," said Jim Koch, co-chair of the Fourth Street Cruise. "We think it's just a good community event. It's free-it's free for everybody. There's no entry fee for the cars, there's no judging or anything. It's just a good time to get out and enjoy the community and look at the new downtown improvements they're making. And it's just a good way to kick off the summer."
Koch adds, "That's the love of it.Because everybody enjoys something a little different, but we all enjoy them all."
"I think it's a hobby. Some people play golf, show horses. And some of us just like the automobile industry. And it's a form of entertainment," said participant Jim Ayers. "During the cruise, the cars don't heat up too bad, so we're pretty fortunate to have a good day and a good place to cruise."
