You’ll be able to see everything new and old at the Sylvan Lake Customs and Classics Show and Shine on July 9.

Meadowlands hosts Show and Shine

On Saturday, July 9 – this local group will be hosting their 10th annual Show and Shine at Meadowlands Golf Club.

If you want to live your life a quarter mile at a time, then Sylvan Lake Customs and Classics has an event for you.

On Saturday, July 9 this local group will be hosting their 10th annual Show and Shine at Meadowlands Golf Club. The event will, luckily, take place right on the grass of the course to avoid the heat of the summer.

Gord Bredo, who started this event 10 years ago with his wife Elaine, is a huge fan of the venue,

“We found that venue a few years ago and it has been really good,” he said. “We get along great with them and it has been a great fit.”

He added that shows that are on asphalt soak in the heat and stores it, whereas the grass is “nice, cool and not as dusty”

“Everyone loves being on the grass and that is a huge plus for us,” he said.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary, Bredo and his crew have introduced many new prices including a $500 cash reward from ReMax that is eligible to anyone who pays the $15 dollar few to show their vehicle. The event will also have new hand-made piston trophies to commemorate the event, which will be handed out to the 10 winners.

According to Bredo, any vehicle “that someone takes pride in” is eligible to participate in the show.

“You will see everything from your grandpa’s Model A, to a souped up Model A that will do a quarter mile in 10 seconds,” Bredo said.

He added that many people think they can’t participate because their vehicle is up to a certain quality, however once they arrive at the show “with a lawn chair” they will be “parked next to a guy who has the same story as them.

The event will also have a breakfast and lunch, which will be supplied by the Knights of Columbus with proceeds going to the Knight’s charitable works. The Show and Shine have also hired a professional face painter free of cost for the kids, but Bredo added that the painter will also paint the adults faces who would like that.

Bredo encourages “anyone with a vehicle they have pride in any classic of some sort to throw out their lawn chair, come on out and have have fun.”

“It will be a great event,” he added.
