The 4th Annual Magrath Summer Solstice Classic Car Parade and Show & Shine will motor through town on Saturday.

The show & shine will take place at Harker Avenue West, and starts at 4 p.m. The classic car parade commences at 6 p.m., and will travel through many residential areas in the community including Good Sam’s and Diamond Willow Lodge.

“We came up with this idea in 2020 when we were all in ‘lock down’ and Magrath’s Celebration Days were cancelled,” said co-organizer Rosemary Minors. “We wanted to do something for the community. Geoff (Minors) is a classic car man and he had a couple of friends into classic cars. We thought we would have maybe a dozen vehicles show. Word spread and we had 50 vehicles! It was, and is so fun to wave to people on the route. The fire department usually makes available one or two fire trucks which the kids love! We had such a great response from the community that this is now our 4th year!”

Food trucks will be on-site, including Swirls ice cream and “That Hawaiian Burger”. There is no charge to enter your classic or “classy” car, motorbike or truck, but a non-perishable food donation is requested. 

Prizes are being offered for the first time this year in various categories. 

Those interested in participating or attending can contact Geoff and Rosemary Minors for more details at 403-593-2697 or 403-331-8270.
