Car show keeps on truckin’

Published on

Canatara Park will merge with Memory Lane on Sunday, June 22 when Sarnia Street Machines host the 24th annual Cruise in The Park Classic Car Show.

More than 450 gleaming classic vehicles will be on display including roadsters, coupes, hot rods and muscle cars.

“It’s a very colourful events with everything there you could imagine,” said club president Bob McMillan.

“And the mood is joyful. People into the car hobby are just a tremendous lot.”

Cruise in the Park is Sarnia’s biggest car show and the second largest in the region.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and features a Swap Meet Area, food and music, including oldies from the ’50s and ’60s and a performance by Scott Manery and the Barnburners at 1:30 p.m.

Many of the cars come from the magical decades of ’50s and the ’60s, as well as classic roadsters and coupes from the ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s. This being the 50th anniversary of the Mustang, organizers are expecting quite a few “ponies” as well.

All proceeds support the Pathways Health Centre for Children.

“It’s the fun factor, and it’s all about the children at Pathways,” McMillan said.

“We lost Centennial Park, of course, but the venue at Canatara is fabulous.”
