CRUISE-IN: Car Corral is for scrounging that special part

Thousands of people check out Sunday's Car Corral, part of the Langley Good Times Cruise-In.

About 8,000 people will wander around the parking lot of Kwantlen Polytechnic University starting at 8 a.m. on the Sunday morning after Cruise-In.

And thanks to them and the vendors also taking part in the Swap Meet and Car Corral, local charities will see extra funds and some students will get help to attend KPU.

Sunday events have become a key component of the Langley Good Times Cruise-In.

It also attracts about 150-200 vendors at the swap meet and lots of vehicle sales.

There is an array of auto parts, auto-related merchandise, vintage items and more.

Proceeds from the Car Corral and Swap Meet are divided between the Cruise-In and the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Foundation which provides funds to students who might not otherwise be able to afford post-secondary education.

There’s free parking at KPU’s Langley campus for the Sunday events which run 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $2 for the public.

Swap meet vendors are charged $20 per stall (per parking spot).

The Car Corral fee is $20 per vehicle, and sellers can set up then sign up.
