The Sauble Beach Sunset Cruisers will host the Bruce Peninsula Classic Car Run on Aug. 9.
The public is invited to come out and view the unique travelling car show that will begin at 1 p.m. from four different locations across the Lake Huron shoreline and the southern Bruce Peninsula.
The Sauble Beach Community Centre, Wiarton Keppel Airport, Port Elgin’s Plex Centre and the Lion’s Head Arena will serve as the gathering points and various starting areas for the show.
The rain or shine event will make a circular route which will include Sauble Falls Parkway as it leads north through Red Bay, Howdenvale, and stopping for a break at Pike Bay. From there it will go east to Highway 6 and then north to Ferndale and east to Lion’s Head where the vehicles will do a “slow stroll” down the main street and past the Golden Dawn Nursing Home for the benefit of the residents there. Drivers are invited to take another break at this location before continuing south along the East Road to the village of Colpoys and then to Wiarton. The route through Wiarton will begin at the north end of McNaughton Street to Frank Street then go east. The cars will perform another “slow stroll” past the Gateway Haven Nursing Home and then gather at the Wiarton Keppel Airport before looping back past the home once more and from there disperse to their home communities.
The route is expected to take each vehicle three hours to complete, and a shotgun start with vehicles leaving from four different areas will create a steady flow of cars for the public’s viewing enjoyment, according to event organizer Morley Lymburner.
Organizers of this event have selected Grey Bruce Crime Stoppers as the featured charity for recognition. Anyone wishing to show their appreciation for this event is encouraged to make a donation by visiting the Grey Bruce Crime Stoppers website. Funds generated for the charity will be monitored and used as a barometer of popularity for future similar events in Grey and Bruce Counties.
Cars included in the rolling show can be an antique, collector car, modified street rods, or any vehicle whose owner has a particular passion.
