More than 100 antique and classic automobiles will be on display in the 13th annual Classic Antique Car Show at R.J. Haney Heritage Village Sunday, Aug. 12.
“This car show has become a favourite for car collectors, fans and spectators from far and wide,” says village manager Susan Mackie.
This year, the crowd will be entertained by young musician Phoenix Goldsmith, with his red Fender bass and his mentor Peter Clark. The duo will perform a repertoire from the ’60s surf-and-drag era. Also performing is Abe Zacharias, an award-winning male vocalist and Songwriter of the Year with the Country Gospel Music Association.
Exhibitors are eligible for awards, including “People’s Choice” categories. First- and second-place ribbons will be awarded in each class. Final People’s balloting will take place at 1 p.m.
Everyone is welcome to participate. If you are interested in displaying your vehicle, registration starts at 8 a.m. Registered cars and trucks will receive a commemorative car show ribbon to display.
The Classic Antique Car Show has the support of many local businesses who donate silent auction items and door prizes.
The day kicks off with a $6 pancake breakfast served from Marjorie’s Tea Room. A barbecue lunch will follow at 11:30 a.m.
Gate admission is 7 for adults, $4 for children ages 5 to 12, and children four and under enter at no charge.
Attendees will receive a ballot to vote for their preferred vehicles in the People’s Choice Award.
