SCUGOG: Cartwright Fields will be packed with classic and antique vehicles, on September 30th, for the Nestleton Classic Car Show.
The event will showcase several different types of vintage cars, from the community and surrounding areas.
The car show is free to attend, and will be also feature a BBQ, 50/50 draw, DJ and an array of activities for children in the “kids zone.”
The event will also be accompanied by the 17th Annual Chili Tasting Contest, where several different chilli’s will be tested by hundreds of people.
“You go around and get to try all of the different chilli’s, you get a ballot and then can vote for your favourite one,” said Melanie Wright, event organizer and Cartwright Fields Sports and Recreation board member.
Any money raised through the chilli contest and fundraising activities will go towards maintaining and updating Cartwright Fields.
Melanie said the board was recently able to add an outfield fence to the lower baseball diamond, and are trying to save up money to purchase LED lights for the upper diamonds.
“We are purely doing this event to give back to the community, so any money raised goes right back into the community,” Melanie said.
She told the Standard they are looking for volunteers for the car show, and added it’s a great way for high school kids to get hours.
The event is also a good place to learn about how to get involved with Cartwright Sports and Recreation, according to Melanie.
“Come out to learn about your community and what Cartwright Sports and Recreation is all about. We are always looking for more board members and volunteers,” she said.
The event runs, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., on Saturday, September 30th, at Cartwright Fields, located on 3951 Highway 7A.
Melanie encourages everyone to come out to the car show, and said it’s a great event for families with children. nformation, or to sign up or contribute, please contact Wilma @ 905-986-4602, Melanie @ 905-809-4240, or visit www.cartwrightfields.ca.
