Cruisin’ in the Queen City, that’s Nelson don’t ya know!

The Queen City Cruise, September 10 and 11, is a fairly new happening in historic Nelson in the Kootenay Rockies region, having begun in just 2003.  The Nelson Road Kings, and car collectors from all over, even the famous Dukes Car Club, America’s oldest established car club, find the appeal here to show off their cars.  Whether you think of Nelson as the “Queen City” or the “Heritage City”, it offers cosmopolitan dining, fascinating shopping and great BC Innkeepers’ Bed & Breakfast lodging, all on the shores of stunning Kootenay Lake.  It’s no wonder car buffs bring their eye popping best rides here for this good time event.   If you’ve a car you want to show you can register early at the Bogustown Pub on September 10th or at 9 AM on Saturday the 11th.  Friday afternoon there will be a soap box derby hosted by the Nelson Business Association and then a parade ending downtown.

Saturday morning is the big Show and Shine event on Baker Street.  Prizes and trophys will be awarded in the afternoon.  At 7 in the evening doors open for The Roof Top Dance at the Parkade, featuring Pauly and the Greaseballs.  Eat your heart out Bowser…
