The eighth annual Golden Gears Car Show and concert will be happening in Iroquois on August 25th.

The event will be held at the Iroquois Locks from nine to three that day. Secretary of Golden Gears Jim Millard says classic cars will be on display and mainly it’s cars from the 60’s and 70’s but they also have cars from the early 1900’s.

Millard says last year there were around 200 cars but if the weather is nice they could get upwards of 400 at the show. During the event, Eddy & the Stingrays will be performing from noon to 2:30. There will also be trophies up for grabs, according to Millard.

“Everybody that comes on the grounds gets a ballot and they vote for their three favourite vehicles. And as well there’s a couple of trophies one for best engine, one for best paint.”

Vehicle registration begins at eight that morning and costs $10.

The event is free to attend but donations are accepted. Millard says they support various charities like the food bank, cancer research, mental health and Christmas exchange in South Dundas with the money they receive.

He adds the South Grenville Food For All Food Bank will be providing food at the event.
