Hundreds of hot rods rolled into Noel earlier this month to participate in the 15th annual Sparks in the Ozarks event.
From Friday, Oct. 9 until Sunday, Oct. 11 custom, clean and costly vehicles cruised the local byways, taking in the natural scenery as well as the shiny.
On Saturday evening, traffic down Main Street was rerouted and the area was host to a drag session.
The event is hosted by DEFINITE OBSESSIONS
Richard Bruner, founder of DEFINITE OBSESSIONS, the club that hosts the event said that it started as a fundraiser for a member, Dave Swanson. Swanson was fighting with a life-long illness that started in his childhood, Type 1 Diabetes, and he needed a kidney transplant.
"Sadly, he passed in 2007 and we have continued to throw the event in his memory and to raise money for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation)," Bruner said.
