Event to be held this Sunday evening at Tatawaw Park, to present contests and prizes while acting as a fundraiser for the Moose Jaw Humane Society
Moose Jaw will become the Mecca of some of Western Canada’s hottest cars and trucks during the Next Gen Car Club Show and Shine this Sunday night at Tatawaw Park.
Event organizer Jaideep Singh estimates that nearly 300 vehicles of all stripes, sizes and vintages will take part in the event, which begins with registration at 4 p.m. and continues until 9 p.m. in the old park. wild animal.
“It will be a great show and I really hope people don’t miss it,” Singh said. “We have people coming from different cities and provinces and we have different leaders in different cities, so they’re going to drive cars from their cities to Moose Jaw… We have a lot of responses on Facebook, a lot of people say they go so this is going to be pretty awesome.
The event – sponsored by Roadway Auto and Sport – will feature a host of awards, including Best in Show, Best Import, Best Muscle, Best Stance and Best Modified, as well as entry giveaways.
Competitions will include the lowest car, the best exhaust and the strongest bass.
Competitions will begin at 7:00 p.m., followed by giveaways and rewards at 8:45 p.m. and a Main Street sunset cruise at the end of the show.
Next Gen did their due diligence to put things in place – they made sure everything was approved by the provincial government, following the pandemic restrictions, as well as with the Town of Moose Jaw to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
Much of their preparations involved the park itself. Next Gen volunteers descended on Tatawaw a few weeks ago with tools and even a mini loader to get the park in shape for the Sunday crowds.
“Tatawaw hasn’t been used very often over the past few years, so we went out and did all the work ourselves to prepare the park,” Singh said. “It was a lot of cleaning and grass and weed removal and stuff like that, but we had a lot of great volunteers helping us get things ready.”
The event also serves as a fundraiser for the Moose Jaw Humane Society. Although there is no entrance fee for the Show and Shine, donations will be collected at the entrance to the park, and the proceeds will be donated to the refuge. The plan worked well during their previous stopover in Moose Jaw last year, where they raised over $ 1,000 in cash and critter supplies.
Singh is hoping that after so much time at home in recent months, people will want an evening in the hot sun – the weather should be sunny and in the 29 ° C range – while checking out the whole event will have to offer.
“This is exactly what we wanted to do,” he said. “People have been locked in their homes for too long and that’s why we are organizing this event. It’s a chance for everyone to go out and enjoy the day, so just go to an auto appointment and have a fun evening.
