The Mustangs are coming out in Langley, and not the four-legged kind.
The Greater Vancouver Mustang Association is once again holding its car show in Langley on Aug. 21.
“There will be raffles with car-related prizes from many well-known local businesses, plus awards in over 35 classes for stock and modified vehicles, all in a beautiful, central location,” said Heidi Hunchak, of the GVMA.
Vehicles start arriving at 8:20 a.m. on Sunday at the George Preston Recreation Centre. The show typically attracts 150 to 250 vehicles and close to 1,000 people.
The public can attend starting at 10 a.m. and everything wraps up after awards are handed out at 3 p.m.
“Our running theme this year is classic – a classic car, plus food vendors including the B.C. classic White Spot, and a classic event we all look forward to at summer’s end,” she said.
People bring vehicles from around the region as well as from Alaska, Seattle, Vancouver Island and Calgary.
Partial proceeds from the GVMA raffle will go to Basics for Babies.
“The club members voted to support this organization several years ago as it’s locally based. GVMA feels that so often a baby’s needs are forgotten when donations are made to food banks and shelters, so our donations truly do make a difference,” Hunchak said. “Our club chose this charity not long after it was created. It has come up for discussion a number of times over the years, and each time it is decided by the membership that we will stay with Basics for Babies.”
Admission is free. No skateboards and bikes are allowed in the show area.
Vehicle registration is $20. People can sign up vehicles before the event but day-of registrations are accepted. Learn more at gvma.org or contact Hunchak at 604-802-1024 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
