Heading into its sixth year, the Lake Country Custom and Classic Car Show has grown and will be a two day event for the first time ever this summer.

The Lake Country Chamber of Commerce has stepped forward to organize a parade of vehicles as well as a night of food and entertainment to kick off the car show on Saturday Aug. 23, the day before the traditional show takes place in Swalwell Park.

Car show manager Ron Volk announced the plans for the 2014 edition of the popular event this week.

“This will be the sixth year for the car show in Lake Country and each year it gets bigger,” said Volk. “We are expecting up to 400 cars this year and over 4,000 people to go through the park on Sunday.”

The Saturday portion of the show is set up as a parade around Lake Country beginning in early evening as car participants will be able to take in some of the area and people can watch the car parade in different spots around Lake Country. After the parade the cars will come back to Swalwell Park where there will be food venders set up along with some entertainment.

On Sunday there will be food venders and the Flashback band will be playing on the pavillion. Every car registered will have a chance to win the $1,000 grand prize and also one of many door prizes.

Volk along with wife Kathy and  co-organizer Mark Jones are committed to ensuring that the show is one of the best in B.C. and are diligently working on attracting some of the nicest cars for the event.

“Whether it is a classic, hot rod, muscle car, pro touring car or just a car that you want to show we encourage you to come out,” said Volk. “We believe will be one of the best car shows you will attend all year.”

The Lake Country Customs and Classics is a non-profit organization and all profits will go to charity organizations in Lake Country. Last year the group donated $7,000 towards the new building for the Lake Country Food Bank.
