DEVILS LAKE, ND (WDAZ-TV) - Classic cars rolled into Devils Lake for the annual Devils Run car show.

The cars parade through Devils Lake on Saturday, but there's more than that to keep people busy.

Gearheads say Devils Run is the biggest car show in the state and cars are just a part of the 20th annual Devils Run weekend.

You can't turn around without seeing a classic car.

"We've got a couple of them here today. I've got a '68 camero convertible and my wife's got a '56 T-Bird," Jamestown resident Neal Klein said.

Around 750 cars are expected to be at the show.

"Definitely the biggest one on North Dakota and they're growing and growing every year it seems like," Klein said.

"Yeah it's basically the biggest one that we attend. We've got one in Minot in September that's pretty good sized but this one's larger than that," Minot resident Randy Hysjulien said.

But the weekend is about more than automobiles. There's everything from a jewelry sale to a roller derby match. Even places like the Lake Region Heritage Center get in on the fun.

"We've had people in here all morning who want to see the museum. Since we've got lots of car people during the Devils Run, they're enjoying our antique car," Heritage Center Board member Theresa Leiphon said.

Devils Run lifts the entire town and boosts the local economy.

"Oh the town is just alive. It's one of the biggest, I think it's one of the biggest events of the year," Leiphon said.

Of course none of that would be possible without the horsepower brought in by hundreds of car owners.

"I'd say the biggest part of it is just looking at all the cars and stuff down there when they're all parked in the park," Klein said.

"I think anybody who's interested in cars, it's kind of their spring thing to get going again. Come down," Hysjulien said.
