Cornwall Ontario – Car enthusiasts will have plenty to see and do when the second annual Kinsmen in Motion: Show & Shine rolls into Lamoureux Park on Sunday, August 24th.

Organizers are expecting to have more than 200 muscle cars, bikes, trucks and hot rods on display in the park during the day to go along with live music, food, vendors, displays, demos and a Hot Wheels dragstrip and other activities for children.

The event is free for all ages!

“People can expect a day of fun in the park with great cars to admire and amazing local talent,” said Eric Smellie, Chair of the Event.

The live music will consist of performances by local blues artist Jamie Heath at 10:30 am and popular country-rock act Switchgear at 1:30 pm.

Gates open at 6:30 am with vehicle registration between 7 am and 11 am. The cost to register is $10 per vehicle, and the show will end with trophy presentations by 4 pm.

To kick off the event in style, Kinsmen Cornwall is adding a drive-in theatre the Saturday night before the show.

Show & Shine and the special movie viewing are free to attend, but donations to Big Brothers Big Sisters are welcomed.

“It gives us a chance to engage the community and the opportunity to support Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Smellie.
