Food vendors and a kid zone will also be included for the family friendly event.

The show in previous years has attracted 10,000 visitors.

“The Peachland World of Wheels Show & Shine is organized by a small group of dedicated volunteers who work throughout the year to put on this show,” says the event’s website.

“A larger group of volunteers helps out on the day of the show to ensure a pleasant experience for participants as well as for those folks who want to look at all makes and models of vehicles from the past. These volunteers are crucial to the success of this show.”
