Classic car lovers can head to Mill Lake on Saturday, July 13 for the second annual Mill Lake Cruise-in Car Show.

The cruise-in raises funds for the Abbotsford Arts Council and MSA Museum Society. It is open to all specialty vehicles with room for over 700 cars. The event is free and open to the public.

It runs from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Mill Lake Park, at Alta Avenue and Ware Street.

The day’s festivities also include food, a silent auction, and live entertainment.

Pete Zomar, who serves as event co-ordinator along with his wife Robbie, said the event is fun for the entire family and will please car lovers of any kind.

“There should be something there for all car enthusiasts.”

There will be dash plaques for the first 400 cars to register as well as a variety of door prizes.

Last year’s event had about 300 cars, and organizers are hoping to double that number this year. Zomar said the event features anything from muscle cars, street rods, hot rods, vintage cars, trucks and low-riders.

Zomar said they also award many trophies for cars as well as people’s choice awards. Registration is $15 and available online at milllakecruisein2013.eventbrite.ca,though there is no need to pre-register.

Volunteers are still needed for 50/50 ticket sales, vehicle registration, security patrol, parking, prize preparation and garbage control. Those interested can call 604-853-0313 or email shannon.d@msamuseum.ca.
