The seventh annual Christ’s Cross Car and Craft Show takes place at the Family of Christ Lutheran Church, 16345 Polk St. N.E.

The car show will be in the parking lot while the craft show will be inside the church. There is no cost to attend, but donations of cash or non-perishable food items for the North Anoka County Emergency (NACE) Food Shelf are welcome.

The show will feature classic, custom, stock, pro street, street rod, muscle cars, tractors and motorcycles. There is a $10 per vehicle entry fee, but motorcycle owners can provide a free will donation to get their bike in the show. Trophies will be awarded to the top 25 vehicles and the top five tractors and motorcycles.

The craft show vendors usually sell many types of items including handmade crafts, clothes, soaps, lotions, custom jewelry, wood figurines, scrapbooking supplies, scented candles and much more.

Vehicle and motorcycle owners can register the day of the event. Craft show vendors had to pre-register.

The Family of Life Lutheran Church along with the Christ’s Cross Car Club and Hooked on Christ have been holding this car show to support the men and women of the military and single parents. All proceeds go to these charitable causes.

The Crystal Military Museum will have a display of military items from the World War I era to the present day on-hand for people to view.

Everett Jasmer will be displaying his USA-1 monster truck and crushing salvaged vehicles. Pancaking old cars is not the only thing he will be doing that day, however. At the car and craft show each year, Jasmer talks about his mission titled “America Needs the Spirit of Christ.”

Hooked on Christ will be serving lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dine on walleye, pulled pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, chips and cold beverages. Lunch proceeds are donated to the Birch Lake Bible Camp.
