Steam-powered vehicles like this tractor will appear at the Otter Co-op.

Calling all steam vehicles to Aldergrove!

Steam power will be featured at the fourth annual Country Car Show at Otter Co-op

Steam power will take centre-stage at the fourth annual Country Car Show at Otter Co-op in Aldergrove.

Put on co-operatively by the Central Fraser Valley Chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada and Otter Co-op, the April 24 show generally features classic cars from a wide range of eras from muscle cars to Model Ts and everything in between, before, and after. This year, however, there’s a little bit of steam blowing into the show.

Along with classic cars, a number of steam powered vehicles will be on hand and those who have steam powered tractors, carriages, or other vehicles and equipment are invited to put them on display.

The Sunday, April 24 event is aptly named Celebrating the Era of Steam. All steam powered entries are eligible for free registration, but steam vehicle exhibitors must register early to ensure adequate space. At both the 2014 and 2015 car shows, a locally-owned 1913 Gaar-Scott Alberta Special steam tractor was on display and operating to the obvious delight of the crowds.

The show also includes prize draws, music, and a burger and hot dog sale, along with the Co-op’s famous $3.99 full breakfast. Contact show chairman John Jackman at 604-996-5646 for more information.
