Classic Car Show a Fantastic Success!

A record number of 83 cars turned out for the 4th Classic Vehicle Show on Saturday 12th May. 

Classic Vehicles lined the city centre streets and entertainment included stilt walkers, unicyclists, salsa dancers and musicians.  Kids were also able to take part in circus skills and craftmaking as well as free facepainting being provided.

The City Sightseeing bus was extremely popular providing mini tours of the city centre throughout the day.

Crowds of people lined the street to watch the parade finale where all the vehicles lined up along Millburn Road and drove down the High Street lead by the Norcon Pipe Band.

The event was a welcome boost to city centre trade and Mike Smith, BID Manager said "This year was the biggest and best yet.  We had a really positive response from businesses and people coming to the area.  Mor and more people are coming to the event.  The marjority of people bringing cars are based locally but we are getting people coming from places further away such as Aberdeen and further down south.  We'll certainly be looking to do it again next year.  The businesses do well, everyone that brings cars enjoys it and people get to admire the cars in the city centre - it works for everyone".

James Fair of Elgin took part with his prized 1962 Bond mini car which he has spent the past five years rebuilding.  He said "This is the first time I've been to one of these rallies with the car.  It's been excellent, the rally has been really well taken care of".
