Car Cruise braves the smoke as it rolls through Poulsbo

Car Cruise braves the smoke as it rolls through Poulsbo

Despite the smoke and air quality, over 80 cars participated in the Poulsbo car cruise Sept. 12.

Cruisers met at the old Albertson’s parking lot on 7th Avenue and from there they received route directions, a Norwegian or U.S. flag, and a “Make Chrome Great Again” pin.

In return, the owners of the cruisers made donations to support Western Washington fire victims. The donations amounted to about $410 and were given to the Western Washington Division of the Salvation Army.

The cruise lasted about an hour as it rolled through downtown Poulsbo, where those who were dining outdoors to support local restaurants got a front row seat.

It then drove through several Poulsbo neighborhoods along Fjord, Lemolo Shores and Viking Avenue. The cruise ended back in downtown Poulsbo where folks were able to safely chat with cruisers about their classic cars or enjoy a meal at one of Poulsbo’s several restaurants and pubs.

“All in all it was a welcomed cruise giving car enthusiasts a way to share their car, spectators a safe event and donations to help victims of the Washington fires,” said Carol Ingles, organizer of the event.
