The Slo Poks Car Club is cruising into Vancouver’s Uptown Village this weekend for its annual Show & Shine event. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 19, Main Street will be chock full of shiny classic cars, street rods, custom cars, bikes, and stand-out automobiles.
Show & Shine—on Main Street from McLoughlin to 25th St.—will include one-of-a-kind handmade trophies for participants. The fee to register a car is $15, plus school supplies to be donated to the Hough Foundation. It’s free to come and watch, and donations to the Hough Foundation (either cash or school supplies) will be enthusiastically welcomed. A portion of the event’s registration fees will also be donated to the Hough Foundation.
Show & Shine is extremely popular, so early arrival is recommended for optimum viewing pleasure. For more details or to register, call Michael at 360-281-5333 or Pete at 360-887-4576. And while you’re in Uptown Village, take a look around and visit some of Main Street’s excellent shops and restaurants, such as Main Street Vintage Home, La Bottega, The Urban Eccentric, Bleu Door Bakery, Arnada Naturals, Thirsty Sasquatch, Trap Door Brewing, Salmon Creek Outfitters, Wild Fern Boutique, Pho Haven and Vancouver Pizza Company. You might also want to stick around for the seventh annual Sip & Stroll, when you can sample the Couve’s finest wines, ciders, and craft brews.
