Bridge Street was lined up with 128 registered participants, added to by a couple late arrivals on Saturday, setting the 14 annual Show n Shine at 130 entries.

With thanks to the show organizers, sponsors and the generosity of local businesses, over $1000 in gifts were presented to car show entrants.

“Everybody has been awesome with donations,” said organizer Ellen “Mac” MacDonald, “We get a really good response and it gets better every year.”

Mayor Frank Armitage opened the show at 10 a.m., by extending a, “warm welcome to exhibitors, and all participants.” He said, “thank you,” to Mac and Frank MacDonald and to Otto Coers. for hosting the annual event. “Donations from this event go to worthy causes in Princeton,”  said the mayor, “and these fine people put on a wonderful event.”

The mayor was also pleased to introduce the Princeton Ambassador team for 2014;  Alex Burke and Kassidy McCutcheon and extended his thanks to The Allenby Road Band for providing the music for the event.

Mac presented a plaque, extending gratitude to John Draper for the years of ongoing support of the show from he and his wife Eva.

“John has retired from the show, explained Mac, and we want to thank him and Eva both for their support.”

Representatives from the Specialty Vehicle Association attended the show and announced that July 12 was Collector Car Appreciation Day and that the month of July had been officially declared, Collector Car Appreciation Month in British Columbia.

With thanks to the efforts of lead, Keith Jackman, Minister Stone and Minister Rich Coleman’s office, the proclamation proposal was granted. Each July, Collector / Vintage Car hobbyists will be celebrated for what they contribute to organizations, hospitals, school and numerous other programs that they support in their communities.

As well as viewing the vehicles in the show, attendees were able to enjoy lunch provided by A & W and Cooper’s Foods (Volunteers from A & W; Jessy Coers, Santana Grey (A & W Bear), Leah Keegan and Christie Swartz and Colleen Stothert from Cooper’s Foods) and treats from Mmmm Popcorn – the popcorn Kiosk, Princeton Fire Department and baked goodies from the ladies of the Living Water Four Square Church.
