Little Chicago Show and Shine draws thousands to downtown Moose Jaw

With more 400 cars on display, there was something for everyone lining Main Street throughout the afternoon on Saturday

When the first annual Little Chicago Show and Shine took place last summer, organizers were over the moon to see 200 cars and around a thousand people make their way to downtown Moose Jaw throughout the day.

Take that event, put it on all the Anabolic steroids, and you have what went down this past Saturday.

With more than 400 cars on display covering seven blocks of Main Street, thousands upon thousands of visitors descended on the city centre for the second edition of the event, rivalling even Sidewalk Days’ traditionally massive crowds.

It got to the point in the early afternoon that even taking photos of individual cars became exceedingly difficult due to the mass of humanity checking everything out.

Those automotive fans were treated to a little bit of everything. Vintage vehicles from the 1950s in perfect condition, super-powered sleepers from the 1980s, weird and wacky cars from every era and even the Black on Black Interceptor from the Mad Max movies could be found during the show.

Visitors were also able to take in musical acts throughout the day as a range of performances lined Main Street.

One of the highlights of the day came at 2 p.m. when the annual Salvation Army Toy Run made its way through the massive crowd on their way to drop off Christmas presents at the Salvation Army citadel on Thatcher Drive.

Here’s a look at just a small sampling of the sights from Saturday afternoon on Main Street!
