Don’t miss the Crescent Beach Invitational this weekend

Car and motorbike lovers will be in heaven this Labour Day weekend as collector automobiles and motorcycles will gather on the grassy lawns of Crescent Beach’s Blackie Spit Park for the second annual Crescent Beach Invitational.

Continuing in the spirit of the former Steamworks Concours, the 2012 event will mark the 10th year that they have brought together a Labour Day long weekend gathering of Collector Automobiles and Motorcycles.

This year, as in the past, entrants will come from all over the west coast of Canada and the United States, cover a broad span of makes and years and include vehicles that are often rare and seldom seen by the public.

The Concours will be officially open from 10am until 3pm. There is no admission charge for entrants or the public, although donations to Children’s Hospital at the event will be appreciated.

There will be a reception on Friday evening August 31st preceding the event.
