Visitors to the July 1 Summer Dreams Holstein Car Show were urged to "come enjoy the day by the mill pond in the shade in Holstein Jubilee Park“ and on a sweltering hot summer’s day that is what they did; both those showing off their classic cars and those there to look at them.
The annual Canada Day event is sponsored by the Egremont Optimist Club, as were the fireworks that took place over the mill pond at dusk.
In addition to classic cars, the Summer Dreams Holstein Car Show features a flea market and craft sale. Food was provided by the Junior Optimists of South-Grey.
Classic car enthusiasts sat in the shade and no doubt talked about cars between the 1953 Ford panel truck belonging to Peter and Irene Pollock of Thamesford and the 1932 Ford Roadster, owned by John Willoughby of Walkerton.
This 1967 Chevy Chevelle, owned by Alvin and Wendy Goll of Wingham, featured a drive-in restaurant tray.
Among the Egremont Optimists helping out at the Summer Dreams Holstein Car Show on Canada Day were Tony Moore, Stella Carmount and Larry Morzuik.
Holstein Jubilee Park was filled with beautiful old cars and trucks on July 1 for the annual Summer Dreams Holstein Car Show, a project of the Egremont Optimist Club.
