Hundreds paraded through downtown Williams Lake Sunday when the Lakers Car Club hosted its 22nd Annual Show and Shine.
Part of its Spring Round Up held each May, Lakers Car Club president Matt Kennedy said all of the hard work organizing the event paid off.
“I think it was a big success,” Kennedy said. “Especially with the terrible weather on Saturday and the looming threat on Sunday it was well attended by a lot of people.”
As always, extravagant cars, trucks, bikes, trailers and even antique engines of all makes and models were on display.
In total, the car show featured 178 entries.
Saturday, roughly 30 cars braved the rain for a poker run, followed by a group ride and dinner at the Laughing Loon, attended by another 70 people.
Kennedy said roughly 20 of the car club’s members helped make the event possible, and thanked them for their help.
“It’s a big job,” he said. “It starts months and months in advance getting trophy sponsorships, businesses to sign off on it and council to shut the street down for the day. Even getting door prizes, goodie bags and art work for our posters takes time.”
So far, all of the feedback Kennedy has received has been positive.
“I’m hearing lots of very good things and we all had fun talking about cars and sharing our stories,” he said. “It went off without a hitch.”
