Hopefully you didn’t try to drive down Mandan’s Main Street this weekend.

Instead of the usual light traffic, there were hundreds of classic rides and the sound of blues music.

The cars lined up for this year’s Buggies ‘N Blues took up nine full city blocks.

It was the 25th year the Mandan Progress Organization put this event together and it’s free to the public.

Stan “Bubba” Vitez has attended all 25 years.

This year he brought his 1932 Diamond T farm truck.

Vitez says, “I purchased [it] for 300 dollars and I just modified it, changed it. I built it on a bet, I told a guy I could build a car for under 5,000 and I lied. It cost me six.”

The festivities wrapped up at 5 p.m. this evening, so Main Street is back to normal traffic patterns after a busy weekend.
