BILLINGS — Thousands of people lined the streets of downtown Billings Friday night to watch hundreds of classic cars "Burn the Point."

The tradition started in the '50s and '60s where local teenagers would drive their cars up and down Second and Third avenues North.

Now, one night every summer, gear heads and looky loos get to watch hundreds of classic cars drive by.

The event is run by the Chase Hawks Memorial Association, a local nonprofit that helps families in crisis.

Starting at 10 a.m. Sunday, all the cars from the parade will be on display at MetraPark. Admission is $3, or $2 and a Pepsi can.
