Slideshow: Lakers Show and Shine for 17th time

The 17th annual Lakers Car Club Show and Shine and Spring Roundup lit up the city’s downtown core Sunday.

The 17th annual Lakers Car Club Show and Shine and Spring Roundup lit up the city’s downtown core Sunday as 214 entrants lined the streets with their vehicles.

LCC secretary Paul Christianson said people came from far and wide to attend the car show — a two-day event which began Saturday with a poker run, dinner and trip to the race track, before the festivities wrapped up Sunday with the main event downtown.

“There was a very good turn out of local cars but, also, it was rewarding to see so many out-of-town people,” Christianson said.

“There were a dozen cars from Washington, as well as from all across B.C.”

He added the long distance award went to Mark Lipton from Calgary, Alta.

During the weekend, 66 trophies were handed out, along with hundreds of door prizes, he said.

“Of special interest was the people’s choice award picked up by Jos Geenson from Williams Lake, with his newly-finished 1967 Acadian,” he said. “People’s choice bike went to Tom Hodgson from Big Creek.”

A drizzle of rain Sunday morning didn’t allow for the event to slow down as the show proceeded as planned.

“Out came the sun and the show was back on with door prizes, games, music and vendors,” he said.

“A huge credit must be given to the Williams Lake business community which supported us in record fashion.”

Awards were presented based on votes from the public and, in the trophy class, from capable judges.
