Although show and shines are typically held during the summer months, there is one last event on the horizon.
The Southern Cruisers Fall Show ‘n Shine will be held on Saturday, Sept. 18 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Assiniboia & District Museum. Cars of all sorts will be on display.
The Southern Cruisers Car Club held a show at the museum back in 2019 as well, but was unable to do so in 2020 due to the pandemic. Organizers are expecting that about 100 vehicles will be on display.
“It is our fall windup show and shine. It is the last one before everyone puts their car away for the year. Hopefully the weather holds out for us,” said club member Chuck Rust.
“It is open to anything and everything from street rods to muscle cars to classics and antiques and trucks,” added club member Darrin Karst.
It will be an ‘Open Hood Day’ at the museum, which features a number of classic cars itself. A barbecue featuring hamburgers and hotdogs will be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All proceeds will go to the museum.
Admission is free to both the car show and the museum. The registration fee for car owners is $10 per vehicle. A club appreciation social will take place after the show and shine for participating vehicle owners and car clubs.
It will certainly be a fun-filled day.
“It is a great way to see the museum out here…the museum here is quite impressive,” said Rust. “And while people are in town they can check out the Shurniak Art Gallery, which is quite well known. There will be lots to do in our little community that day.”
