Classic cars – along with some future classics – once again converged on Campbell River over the Labour Day weekend for the North Island Cruisers Show & Shine.

As always, the event began on Saturday night with a parade through town. Starting out at Discovery Plaza and heading north across the bridge through Painter/Barclay, then down through town to Willow Point and back, the parade covered the entire community once again.

This year, however, the organizers added a twist, asking those along the parade route to dress up or put on a sidewalk display of some kind to entertain the parade participants, as well, for a chance to win prizes.

Then on Sunday, the cars made their way to Tyee Plaza and Shoppers Row and invited the community to come have a look.

Parked together in sections of similar automobiles, there were the cars from the Campbell River British Car Club, a large contingent of Ford Mustangs from throughout that car’s history, flashy new sports and luxury cars, and, of course, the cars of the North Island Cruisers themselves, out on display along with various food trucks and Campbell River Rotarians serving up hot dogs and smokies, raising money for all the great causes they contribute to within the community.

Despite the periodic light drizzle throughout the day, much fun was had by all.

Check out a video of some of the fun.
