That didn't seem to matter much, as fans of show cars, trucks and motorcycles flocked to the Marshall square to see a lineup of vehicles that stretched for two blocks along North Street and for nearly a block on Lafayette Avenue.
Sisters Michelle and Madison Wyatt were among the youngsters who accompanied their parents to the event.
"To see these cool trucks and cars," Michelle said. "Those two cars, they let us get in, and my mom took pictures."
"It's just been a real fun day for us," Madison said.
Kids also could play in a bounce house sponsored by Marshall Cinema or get their faces painted by members of the Marshall High School Art Club.
In addition to providing local families with an entertaining weekend event to attend, the show accomplished another of the sponsor's main goals, too, according to MDN Publisher Shelly Arth.
In addition to the lineup of vintage vehicles, event sponsor John Rector Motors had on display 2013 models.
At the end of the show, just prior to the presentation of show awards, a number of prizes were given to patrons who registered during the day.
Stanley Sparks of Marshall won the 50-inch TV sponsored by Silverthorn's Furniture and Appliances.
Gary Arth of Marshall won the 50/50 raffle. The other half of the proceeds will be donated to Marshall Food Pantry.
Porter Maher helped draw the winning tickets for the drawings.
The show also helped bring people to Market on the Square, Marshall's farmers' market. The market, which had planned to close at the end of September, stayed open one more week.
Market Vice President Terry Aldridge, a produce vendor, said he sold nearly all his goods, and he noted that Gary and Martha Self, who sell baked goods, sold everything they brought.
