“We would like to thank all the folks for bringing their amazing vehicles and all the fans who came out to see these rolling works of art. The weather was not what we had hoped for but that didn’t stop them,” Sulyma said. “We would like to thank the Gimli Car Club for again partnering with us. We would like to thank all the volunteers, as there couldn’t be a show without you. We would also like to thank the band “You & What Army” for the awesome tunes and Alan Norris-Elye for the sound. We would also like to send a huge thank you to our sponsors.”

The event attracted a total of 185 entries and raised more than $300 in addition to hundreds of pounds of food for the community’s local food bank, Evergreen Basic Needs.
