The organizers expect 200 classic cars and trucks to be displayed and have a variety of family friendly activities on offer. The organizers say there will be train rides by donation, live music featuring Vinyl Wave, trophy presentations, food vendors and two 50/50 draws, with proceeds going to the Salvation Army.

The show also aims to raise funds for The Mustard Seed Street Church and Victoria Women’s Transition House Society.

Originally founded in 1979, the Victoria Ford club’s first car show was originally called The First Canadian All-Ford Picnic and then developed into a bigger event that included other makes of cars. Since then they have organized tours and shows, welcoming new members to their club.
