Annual Mill Lake Cruise-In returns to Abbotsford

Event takes place July 8, featuring hundreds of specialty vehicles

The annual Mill Lake Cruise-In takes place Saturday, July 8 at Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford.

The free family event runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., featuring hundreds of specialty vehicles.

This year’s event is expanding and will involve the closure of Bevan Road from Ware Street to Primrose Avenue.

Free public parking will be available at Abbotsford Middle School, as well as at the MSA Arena, which is a 10-minute walk.

The Mill Lake Cruise-In was voted one of the best car shows in the Lower Mainland by Specialty Vehicle Association of B.C. It raises funds for Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) to buy badly needed equipment for the hospital.

The event is co-ordinated by Pete and Robbie Zomar and is open to all specialty vehicles.

More than 700 cars are expected at this year’s event, including muscle cars, street machines, classics, hot rods, vintage cars, trucks and low-riders.

In addition to the car show, the day’s festivities include trophies, dash plaques, vendors, food, live entertainment, door prizes, a 50/50 draw, and a silent auction.

There will be special performances by Topaz, The Maybelles, and Karen Lee Batten.

Look for special guest Dallas Smith, who will be signing autographs at the BA Customs tent.

The cost of registration for vehicles is $15 and all proceeds will be donated to FVHCF. Contact robbiezomar@shaw.ca for more information.
