Sault Ste. Marie Celebrates Eighth Annual Slashin’ Ashmun Cruise Night

From new sports cars to classic trucks, traffic in downtown Sault Ste. Marie was at a crawl Friday.

The eighth annual Slashin’ Ashmun Cruise Night took place under blue skies. The event started in 2015 as a way to relive the memories of the 70s and 80s, when Ashmun street in the Soo was a hot spot for cruising around. Gas was around a dollar a gallon and the music and burnouts were loud. Just like back in the good ole’ days. People cruised around in a classic, a junker, a motorcycle and even a new car fresh off the lot.

“This Slashin’ Ashmun started years ago. So what these guys are doing is that they are coming in and driving down and over the last four or five years, we have started seeing some of the guys coming in and wanting to show cars. It brings a lot of the older people together and a lot of the younger people together,” Ross Shubert, a Twin Sault Cruisers member, said.

If you are hungry for more cars, the Twin Sault Cruisers Car Show will be held August 6 on historic Water Street.
