Car show pays off for Langley’s D.W. Poppy Secondary.

More than 5,000 people are expected to attend Sunday's event.

Thousands of students have benefitted from the D.W. Poppy Secondary Car Show since it started 29 years ago.

The proceeds each year support school programs. This year’s show is May 1, at  the school, 23752 52nd Ave.

The casual little car show in rural Langley has grown into a vital fundraiser for the school.

And it seems the public now looks forward to a trip back to school.

“We expect over 5,000 people at this event,” noted principal Balan Moorthy.

The public can stop by the school 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is by donation (minimum $3).

Vehicle owners can start entering the site at 8 a.m. The fee for each vehicle is a minimum $15 donation on show day.

Advance registration is possible at the school for $10 per vehicle or at (event 2503661).

Breakfast is being cooked up by the Fort Langley Lions. The D.W. Poppy basketball teams have the concession all day.

There’s vendors, a 50/50 draw, prizes and more. Check out DW Poppy Car Show on Facebook.

The show is organized by a volunteer committee of parents, teachers, school administration and members of the community.
