Some of the hottest cars from BC, Alberta and Washington state will roll into town this weekend for the Lake Country Customs and Classics Car Show. The event gets underway at Swalwell Park on Saturday morning.

Ron Volk and Mark Jones, the new organizers for the show, are excited to turn the event into one of the valley’s most popular gatherings of car enthusiasts.

“We’re committed to ensuring that this car show is one of the best in BC, and we are diligently working on attracting some of the nicest cars that you will ever see at an event such as this,” says Volk.

Volk and Jones stress that the show isn’t just for car owners. Families are encouraged to come out and have a look around free of charge.

Aside from the hotrods, muscle cars and restored classics that will be on display, other attractions will include food vendors, a car part swap meet, and live music going all day. Door prizes will be drawn throughout the day and at 3:00 p.m. a grand prize valued at $1,000 will be given away.

For those individuals who wish to show a prized car, registration is open up until the morning of the show. Registration forms are available at www.lccc.com or just show up with your vehicle and the $20 registration fee at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday morning.

The Lake Country Customs and Classics Car Show opens to the general public at 10:00 a.m.
