    Car enthusiasts line Colby Avenue for a glimpse of the parade of antique cars and hot rods at a past Cruzin' to Colby event.

You are in luck.
It's the 13th year for the annual Cruzin' to Colby car show and word on the street is that this could be the biggest one yet.
This Memorial Day tradition, hosted by the Seattle Rod-Tiques car club, started in 1999 and today has hundreds of hot rods rallying for attention through Everett's downtown core.
There have always been hot cars during Cruzin' to Colby, and in 2003 a Sunday cruise and dance were added. Those will also occur this year.
Sunday's cruise starts at 1 p.m. Up to 400 hot rods and car classics parade down Colby Avenue, an event that entertains while paying homage to the history of Colby Avenue where cruising through downtown Everett was born more than 50 years ago.
On Monday, the Show and Shine opens at 8 a.m. where the streets are lined with vendors and possibly 800 cars, if the weather smiles down on the leather interiors.
Live entertainment is part of the party Monday and goes from start to finish at the intersection of Hewitt and Colby avenues.
This premier car phenomenon has over the years drawn more than 190,000 people to downtown and raised more than $140,000 for local charities.
The schedule for the 13th annual Cruzin' to Colby Car Show is:
Sunday: 1 to 5:30 p.m., cruise on Colby; 6 to 10 p.m. dance at The Holiday Inn, 3105 Pine St., Everett. Open to the public at $5 admission; featuring the Wright Brothers Band.
Monday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Show and Shine; 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wright Brothers Band; 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Danny Vernon Illusions of Elvis; and 3 to 4 p.m. awards.
