Morinville – One of the highlights of the annual St. Jean Baptiste Festival is the Home Hardware / Bumper-to-Bumper Show and Shine, an automotive event that organizers say will take up roughly four square blocks to showcase all the cars, trucks and shiny vehicles that come to town for the one-day event.
“Show and Shine is going to be bigger and better this year,” said Festival Chair Paul Smith. “We’re adding live music to the Show and Shine, and a beer gardens. We’re expecting to hit record numbers of great cars again.”
Smith said the Show and Shine has been so successful in past years that it could be a stand alone event in the community. He is grateful of Bumper-to-Bumper’s long-standing partnership with festival to bring the Show and Shine into the festival umbrella. “This Show and Shine rivals any in the area, and it brings people from all over the province,” Smith said, adding the addition of a beer garden and live music is anticipated to make the event even better.
The event runs Saturday June 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Festival runs June 20-22 this year.
