Some of the MCCPA fun for 2016


MCCPA Covered Bridge Cruise Tour

Covered_Bridge

On Sunday October 30, MCCPA held the Annual Covered Bridge Tour. The Tour was held just two days before November but had Sun and temperatures in the 80s, it seemed more like a day in July. The event again was capped to 100 cars and sold out long before the event. Registration started at 8:15 am at Oregon Dairy led to a wonderful day of cruising through covered bridges. By tradition, the cruise ended around 3 at Hershey Farms for great meal! Thanks to Mike Cole and all the supporting staff for organizing the Covered Bridge Tour.

There is nothing like going through a Covered Bridge in Lancaster county.

This pic is the camera man taking a pic of someone taking a pic at them…or is it the other way around?

The first section of the Cruise is split in two groups, one runs clockwise and one runs counter clockwise. The two pass each other in the middle.

During the 100 mile Cruise, there is more in Lancaster to see than just Covered Bridges.

By tradition, the tour ends at Hershey Farms. The friendly staff helps us park and serve up a great buffet. Again, thanks to Mike and all the persons that helped make this year’s Cruise a success!
