Cruise over to Kwantlen

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.

“Last year I’d say we had probably 8,000 [people] through,” said Lori Watts, who oversees the Sunday events.

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

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 afford post-secondary education.

The event brings in about $6,000-$8,000 in funds for charity.

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.

Swap meet vendors are charged $20 per stall (per parking spot). The Car Corral fee is $20 per vehicle and sellers can set up and sign up.
