Show ‘n Shine Set for Sunday
Prince George, B.C. – If you like cars, the 43rd annual Show ‘n Shine at Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park this Father’s Day Sunday is the place to be.
“The show goes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with around 400 cars – everything from cars from the 1910s and 1920s right up to current day cars” says Rick Fewster, president of the Cruisin’ Classics car club. “The Prince George Vintage Motorcycle Club will be joining in too and bringing 20 or 30 bikes.”
He says it’s the biggest car show in the city and one of the largest events put on in the park each year.
So, what makes it so popular?
“I don’t know. I think everybody has a bit of a fascination with cars and we’ve been very lucky with the weather,” says Fewster. “And it’s something to do on Father’s Day and I mean, what dad doesn’t like cars?”
The weather forecast is looking favourable on Sunday, with Environment Canada calling for sunny skies and a high of 18 degrees.
He says there’s no entry fee for spectators and notes all the money generated from registration ($10) goes back into the club.
“It costs us a considerable amount of money to put the show on. There’s a small rental for the park, we bring bathrooms, pay for security and insurance. There’s costs.”
Fewster also asks participants to bring their cars to the site at 8 a.m. for set-up and notes trophies will be handed out at 3 p.m.
