Are you looking for something fun to do with your father on Father’s Day? If so, there will be an incredible assemblage of automobiles, motorcycles and trucks on display this Sunday at the annual Old Car Sunday in the Park event in picturesque Fraser River Heritage Park in Mission, B.C.
What began 23 years ago as a small Father’s Day car show, has now become one of the largest automotive shows in Western Canada.
The show is organized by a committee made up of members of four local car clubs- Early Ford V8 Club, Pacific Model A Club, Vintage Car Club of Canada (Golden Ears Chapter) and Mopars Unlimited.
Unlike many shows that focus on a specific brand, model or time period, the theme for the Old Car Sunday in the Park event is, “If you love it, bring it!” The show is a chance for people who love old cars to gather together and enjoy the day in a beautiful setting.
There is a $10.00 entry fee per vehicle, and spectators can attend by donation. The first 1,000 registered vehicles will receive a commemorative dash plaque.
A portion of all proceeds will benefit Variety, the Children’s Charity, so hopefully, crowds will be strong.
The organizers work very hard to keep the event family friendly, so there will be food vendors, entertainment and activities for the kids located throughout the park.
Parking is free, but limited, due to the large amount of space reserved for the huge number of show vehicles, so carpooling would be wise. The parking area and spectator entrance is located at 7494 Mary Street.
There will also be free parking available at the West Coast Express parking lot (located at 7229 Mershon Street) in downtown Mission, and free shuttle buses to and from the venue will begin at 8:30 a.m. and run for the duration of the show.
The entrance for show vehicles is at the eastern terminus of 7th Avenue (33755 7th Avenue). Cars will be registered upon arrival, and event volunteers will be in attendance to direct entrants to their assigned display positions. Show vehicles may enter the park at 7:00 a.m.
The show runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., rain or shine.
