Photos by Jay Forness

Cruisin’ Uptown Jackson, presented by the River City Rodders and City of Jackson Community Outreach Board, began its 13th season from 5-8 p.m. on April 10 by the Cape Girardeau County Courthouse lawn in Jackson.

The event featured classic and antique cars, muscle cars, street rods, Jeeps and motorcycles. Last season was cut short due to COVID-19, but this year the event is expected to be held the second Saturday of each month between April and September.
