For the past 26 years, Gull Lake Park in Gravenhurst has played host to one of the biggest car shows north of Barrie.
The 2020 edition has run into an unexpected curve in the road with COVID-19, but they are changing gears to put on a show that will thrill car lovers from around the virtual world.
Wednesday, May 20 marked the launch of registration for the 2020 Gravenhurst Car Show – Virtual Edition, sponsored by Canadian Tire Gravenhurst.
The event will still give car owners the chance to showcase their vintage vehicles while they compete for the top 10 People’s Choice Awards for a wide range of prizes.
That includes the first 100 car owners to register, who will get the chance to win $500 worth of tires from longtime car show sponsor Wayne’s Tire in Gravenhurst.
Anyone who wants to take part can register their vehicle at gravenhurstcarshow.com between May 19 and June 14.
Participants need to take a photo of their car and then include a little bit of information about the vehicle they’re showing off.
The vehicles will be posted online at gravenhurstcarshow.com between June 17 and June 24. Voters can go online and vote for their favourites, which will be broken down by era.
Those who don’t want to miss their annual car show T-shirt will have an opportunity to purchase one and have it shipped to their home.
Expect the Gravenhurst Car Show to be back at Gull Lake Park in 2021 on Saturday, June 19.
