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.
