This weekend (July 6-8) was the 18th annual Show and Shine in Dawson Creek. Organized by the Dawson Creek Mile Zero Cruisers club it was a weekend of sun, fun and cars. Every year the club puts on an amazing car show featuring all different kinds of vehicles from all over BC and Alberta. A record-breaking 276 cars were displayed over three blocks in the downtown area this weekend with a wide range of cars being shown. Some of the highlights included a 1972 Triumph TR6, a 2005 Dodge Neon SRT-4, a 1923 Ford C-CAB, a 1959 Ford Galaxy Skyline Retractable, a 1988 Chevrolet Cavalier, a 1998 Suzuki Samy, a 1953 Hudson Hornet and even a 2013 Ford Escape. The streets were full of locals and tourists alike out to enjoy the 31 degree Celsius weather. The local downtown businesses also contributed to the happy atmosphere by opening their doors and enticing customers with ice cream, slushies, pie and lemonade. A live band was playing appropriate car show hits such as “Mustang Sally” while people danced to in the street. All of these attributes; the cars, the people, music and of course the food make this a weekend not to be missed by car enthusiasts or anyone looking to have a good time in Dawson Creek.
