Ruthven Park National Historic Site staff, the Lower Grand River Land Trust Inc., and the site’s fantastic team of volunteers are excited to announce that the annual Cars in the Park Vintage Car Show will be returning on Thanksgiving Monday 2017 for its 21st year!
This event has been hit with car cruisers from throughout the province since it began 2 decades ago. In 2016, over 500 cars traveled to Ruthven Park for this event.
The entrance gates will be open at 9:00 am for vintage cars so that they are able to fill out their vehicle registration forms and find suitable parking places. General visitors are invited to start arriving at 10:00 am.
Admission will be $10.00 per vehicle for car cruisers and general visitors alike, which is to be paid at the gate. Volunteers will be stationed throughout the grounds to take admission, provide directions, and assist with parking.
In addition to viewing the countless beautiful vintage cars that will be on site, the event will also feature outdoor tours, trail walks, displays, door prizes, and tours of the Thompson Mansion. There will be something for every kind of visitor.
Please note that this event is rain or shine. We look forward to welcoming the public for another memorable edition of Cars in the Park on October 9!
