A large collection of beautiful and unique show vehicles will be on display and the church has arranged live music to be performed on stage during the show by local band Southern Breeze, he said.

Then from 6 to 9 p.m. McAlester Main Street and Big Mac Cruzers will host McAlester’s Cruise Night down Choctaw Avenue, according to Ginny Webb executive director of McAlester Main Street.
