The boxes are piled high in the Cruise-In office. Soon these boxes will make their way to the fountain at Fraser Highway and Glover Road to be part of the Cruise-
In souvenir booth, an expectation of car show aficionados.
Lori Watts, one of the original members of Cruise-In, is with the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce, a sponsor of the event.
"I have about 25 [shirt] boxes.
It's all going up the wall in the [Cruise-In] office," Watts said
of the supply of souvenirs that arrived a little over a week ago.
"We have added other items in, in prior years, we've tried other things, but the big things are the hats, shirts, licence plates, dash plaques, and posters."
With souvenirs being sold at the event for the past 16 years, the Cruise-In team has a good idea of what goes over well and what doesn't.
Watts noted that she's been part of the crew from the start, giving her great insight into what sells.
"Right from the very beginning," Watts said of her tenure. "I'm the only founding member [of Cruise-In] left."
The souvenir booth runs from 9 a.m. until the end of the event on Saturday. Along with the standard fare, tickets for the Ultimate Garage can be purchased at the booth for $10 each or 3 for $25.
This year's Ultimate Garage is $20,000 worth of garage ware from Lordco.
All proceeds from souvenir and Ultimate Garage ticket sales go to Cruise-In.
"It's pretty minimal," Watts said of the souvenir stand line-up. "It's what the car guys want, so we give them what they want."
Watts added that to find out show details, timing, and other information about this year's Cruise-In, check out the Langley Good Times Cruise-In website.
