Old Car Sunday in the Park returns

Mission’s annual Father’s Day event is set for Sunday at Fraser River Heritage Park

A Mission tradition continues this weekend.

Thanks to a partnership between the District of Mission and the Mission Fire Fighters Charitable Society, Old Car Sunday in the Park returns to Fraser River Heritage Park on Father’s Day (June 18).

Old Car Sunday is one of the largest and longest-running car shows in Canada. The event’s future became cloudy last year after long-time organizers Don and Lilah Warren, of Rumbleseat Restorations in Mission, announced that the show’s 25-year run had come to an end under their leadership, citing a lack of volunteers to maintain the core organizing committee and that the membership of the organizing car clubs is declining

However, shortly after that announcement the district stepped in and confirmed the show would continue to be hosted on Father’s Day in Fraser River Heritage Park.

Now that the district has partnered with the Mission Firefighters Charitable Society, who are leading the event, the show’s future looks bright.

This year will see more than 1,000 antique and collector vehicles on display along with food vendors and live music.

Proceeds from the event will support local charities.

The show runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
