A doubleheader weekend unlike any other is coming up in Chemainus.
First up is The Classics car show Saturday, June 8 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., organized by the Chemainus Business Improvement Association.
This is the second annual car show in mid-town, along Maple Lane.
“This fun, free community event encourages residents and visitors into mid-town and old-town areas of Chemainus,” noted CBIA coordinator Shelley Johnstone. “Last year’s event was hugely successful with 35 cars on display, so we are hoping to have a big crowd again. The event also draws people from neighbouring communities into Chemainus to participate and to view the cars.”
There will be recorded music playing, and Maple Lane Café is having a barbecue on its patio.
“It’s a perfect way to spend the day: view beautiful classic cars, enjoy a barbecue, visit with friends and stop into shops and restaurants in town,” declared Johnstone.
You can still register your car by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with name, email, telephone number and car details. It’s free to do so.
Sunday, June 9 marks the return of the Chemainus Self Guided Garden Tour between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Tickets are $12 apiece and going fast, available at Sandpiper Gardens and Glass or Russell Farms Market & Garden Centre.
“The weather being great for blooms so gardens coming along nicely,” noted co-organizer Jan O’Neill.
Proceeds from ticket sales go to the Harvest House food bank. After purchasing a ticket, patrons will be given details about garden locations.
