This Saturday a car show and outdoor movie will be held in Cranbrook, British Columbia. It's going to be a whole flashback to the drive-in days with classic cars and the appropriately-paired outdoor cinema screening of American Graffiti
. The car show and outdoor movie on an inflatable screen is presented by Southern Mopar Owners Group (SMOG). The "Mopars in the Mountains" car show has occurred in the past but they are trying to make it even bigger and better than past years.
Moir Park is a gorgeous spot for a car show, said Mike Stanko, one of the organizers. We offer a nice show on a large grassy field with a beautiful view of the mountains. The view is absolutely breathtaking. (BC Local News
Here is all the info you need to know:
If you want to show your own classic car, you'll need to register on Friday at the Lordco parking lot.
From 11am to 4pm on Saturday the car show will take place along with a swap meet.
Afterword, there will be an awards show and $10 dinner.
The drive-in movie begins at 9pm and costs $5 per person, but kids get in free.
You can watch the movie from your car drive-in style, or sit on the grass or bleachers in front of the inflatable screen.
It should be a pretty cool event so be sure to come out, even if you don't have a spiffy car to show off. American Graffiti
is a classic car show film and a good choice for their outdoor movie presentation. From what I understand, the Mopars in the Mountains Car Show has been pretty popular in past years so be sure to get there early to stake out a good spot for the drive in movie.
