Colony Days car show

Nat Gardner of Anchorage brought along her 1956 Ford F-150 for the Colony Days Classic Car Rally. 

Palmer city officials moved to sooth ruffled feathers over the initial rejection, for safety reasons, of a request from the local chamber of commerce for a permit to hold its car show along Evergreen and Fireweed avenues in Palmer during the annual Colony Days festival.

Palmer’s “Uniform Traffic Code says the city cannot have two parallel roads closed at the same time for safety reasons,” a local resident wrote in “Palmer Alaska Buzz,” a social media site. “The area between the two streets is a green belt, which some feel should negate the safety concerns,” the commenter wrote.
