The 14th annual Ladysmith Show and Shine is this Saturday.

Big turnout expected for Ladysmith Show and Shine on Saturday

Car, truck, motorcycle, hot rod and all other vehicle connoisseurs make sure you mark this Saturday as your day.

The annual Ladysmith Show and Shine is happening in heritage downtown Ladysmith.

“First Ave., from Roberts St. to Warren St. will be home to some of the most amazing vehicular works of art on Vancouver Island and even the lower mainland” said chair Duck Paterson.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the show starts at 10 a.m.

“The show is limited to 260 cars , and last year we had over 200 so we believe this year will be bigger,” Paterson said.

Starting on the Friday before the downtown show the A&W has a rod run along First Ave. The cars leave the A&W at 7:00 pm and come into Ladysmith, at the round-a-bout, at 7:10 and cruise all along First Ave to Dogwood and then Davis Rd.

“The round-a-bout is a great spot to see many of the cars and trucks and great for taking pictures” said Paterson.

This year, being Canada’s 150th birthday, the show and shine committee has a special trophy for the best car “made” in Canada.

Along with that trophy will be the participants’ choice award as well as the Little Valley Restoration award for best paint job. The spectators also get a chance to pick in the People’s Choice Award which will have plaques for first second and third place.

There will also be concessions, mini donuts and the Kinsmen will be hosting a beverage garden in the library parking lot.

The show is free for spectators and any excess funds after expenses are donated to a bursary at VIU for a student in the automotive field.
