Show and Shine turns back time on Fernie’s streets

Classic cars lined Second Avenue on Sunday afternoon as part of the Classic Show & Shine.

The Show & Shine is part of this year’s Summer Sunday Social calendar and brought out car-lovers of all ages to Fernie’s downtown streets. Spread out for three blocks from Fourth to Seventh Streets, Downtown Fernie was sent back in time as collector cars from decades past took over the road.

Cars dated back to the 1930s contrasted starkly with the latest models from the local Fernie Ford dealer.

The smallest car? A 2003 Birel racekart owned by Sparwood resident Ken Towers.

“Since I’ve been without a proper track for this little guy I figured why not bring it out to the Fernie Show & Shine?” said Towers.

Some of the cars traveled all across the Elk Valley and beyond – from Cranbrook to Alberta.

Next week, the Sunday Summer Social continues with the culmination of the 50th Anniversary of the Curse Lifting Ceremonies. The celebration will include a play on the Ghostrider at the Fernie Museum and a city-wide “cursed” scavenger hunt.
