The 10th annual Weyburn Show and Shine will be taking place on Saturday, June 18. The event will be taking place throughout downtown Weyburn from 1 p.m. until 8 p.m., with around 200 to 250 vehicles on display. Registration will begin at 1 p.m. on June 18 at the Royal Canadian Legion and will cost $10.
"People can register any classic cars, or just interesting vehicles in general," said Harvey Oudot, one of the event coordinators. "People can also enter motorcycles and antique tractors in the show this year."
The motorcycles and tractors are being added to the show to help make the 10th anniversary a little bit bigger then past Show and Shines. The motorcycles and tractors won't be the only additional attractions, however.
SGI will be on hand with a roll-over simulator. This is a simulation will show people what it is like to be in a vehicle roll-over without a seatbelt. There will be a food court set up for the show, and a DJ will provide music for the event. Kids will also have to keep an eye out for the A&W Rootbear, who will be making his way around the show.
The Show and Shine will also coincide with the Weyburn Walk of Fame induction ceremony. This ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. in front of City Hall. The inductees this year are Tom Laing and Harold Mackay. They are both being inducted for their contributions to local area business and industry. The Walk of Fame ceremony is held once every two years in order to keep it prestigious. The next Walk of Fame will take place in 2013, the year of Weyburn's 100th anniversary as a city.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to cancer and Weyburn Regional Victim Services.
