Everyone’s welcome to participate. If you are interested in displaying your vehicle, free registration is from 8 to 10 a.m.

Registered cars and trucks will receive a commemorative car show ribbon to display and have the opportunity to win in the People’s Choice Awards.

Attendees can pick up a ballot in the Montebello Museum to vote for their favourite vehicles in the People’s Choice Awards. Categories include: Antique pre-1916, Vintage pre-1942, American – Stock Only to 1969, American Stock Only 1970 and up, Modified (Hot Rods and Custom) and Foreign.

First and second place ribbons will be awarded in each class. People’s balloting will close at 1 p.m., with ribbons being awarded at 1:30.

Visitors to the show will enjoy musical entertainment from local duo Green Room, featuring well-known local entertainers Peter Clark and Elaine Holmes.

“Holmes’ vocal power and range, combined with Peter’s soft rock blend, create a smooth sound sure to keep the car crowd singing and dancing along,” says Susan Mackie, general manager of the village.
