Car and Lego enthusiasts rejoice

Agrifair has two new shows aims at car lovers and Lego builders

Agrifair is looking for all car enthusiasts, Lego builders and people of all ages with imaginations who want to create.

The Carz and More show and the Lego Mania show take place at Agrifair from Aug. 2-5. No matter what your age, there will be lots of fun things to do and see.

“We’re pretty excited!” said Don Curtis, a director of the Agrifair. “This will be a marquee event for the Agrifair. I expect it to be as big a draw as the rodeo and music concerts.”

First out of the gate on Aug. 2 is Vintage Day, a showcase of non-modified, pre-1973 cars and trucks, followed by SOS: Services on Safety on Aug. 3, featuring current and vintage emergency vehicles.

The Aug. 4 show, Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Anything with Wheels, will exhibit a variety of wheeled and winged machines, and finally on Aug. 5, Hot Rods, Sports Cars and Super Cars will present a collection of expensive and luxurious cars.

Fans and enthusiasts will have an opportunity to be judges and cast a ballot for their favourite vehicle in three of the above four categories throughout the weekend. The top vehicle at the end of each show day will receive a $500 prize based on the votes.

If you own a cool car or a cool ‘thing on wheels’ and want to get in on the jackpot plus an opportunity to show off your baby, call 604-852-6674 or visit www.agrifair.ca to get your entry form.

A giant Lego creation will be in the works throughout the long weekend. Brickville DesignWorks, an interactive company that creates giant sculptures and custom creations out of Lego, is planning a big build among other creative fun for people of all ages.

“It will be fun, big and interesting for people to see and take pictures of,” said Robin Sather, one of 13 Lego certified professionals in the world and co-founder of Brickville DesignWorks.

The only hint given is that it will be something in line with this year’s Agrifair theme, The Wild Wild West.

Construction will begin on Aug. 2 and continue through to the end of the fair, so be sure to return on Sunday afternoon to see the final creation.

The competition stacks up at the Lego Mania show, so gather up your bricks, studs, tiles, plates and baseplates, and build something cool or simply register a prized piece from your home collection. Expect to see entries from King Traditional School’s Lego Club. Entries must be original. Creations will be displayed and prizes will be given. See www.agrifair.ca for registration details.
