The Gravenhurst Car Show is open and online.
According to organizers, the online option has been embraced by those missing in-person car shows, so there are almost 200 cars on display.
Check the show out at www.gravenhurstcarshow.com. It’s time for the public to pick the best of the best. The show remains open for voting until June 23.
This year, Car Show organizers decided due to Covid-19 gathering restrictions, they would again make the switch to a virtual format. Car owners were asked to submit photos and short descriptions of their antique and classic automobiles, and they responded with gusto.
“We had two choices, we could either cancel the show or take it online for a second year,” says Leila Nasr-Sharifi, Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce marketing and sponsorship lead. “After last year’s great response, we knew we could take it online to a virtual format again. We’ve received registrations for so many great and unique vehicles.”
Car enthusiasts can head to the Car Show website and vote for their top 10 picks across several categories. The show is sponsored by Canadian Tire Gravenhurst and car owners compete for the Wayne’s Tire Top 10 People’s Choice Awards for a wide range of prizes.
All cars registered have a chance to win $500 worth of tires from longtime car show sponsor Wayne’s Tire in Gravenhurst.
Every year donations collected at the Car Show help fund a bursary for a Gravenhurst High School Student going into the automotive field, and this year is no exception.
Enough money was donated by virtual car show entrants that organizers are confident they can once again offer the bursary.
Winners of the Top 10 Peoples’ Choice Award will be announced Saturday, June 27 via gravenhurstcarshow.com and on the Gravenhurst Car Show Facebook and Instagram page. The show will remain up for one month so people can view the winners.
