Marshville Heritage Festival

This is a historical festival with Niagara Region rural history in the forfront. There is plenty for people of all ages with historical farm workings, music and more entertainments.

The important part is there was a British Car show.

Tony sent in some pictures

Saskatoon Broadway Street Fair

While a bit farther out west, in Saskatoon Saskatchewan, is a festival that celebrates the city! This is a one day festival the first day after Labour Day with all music, busking, arts and crafts.

But, again, the important part is there was a British Car show.

Ed Aldred, from Saskatoon, sent in some pictures

Brits In the Sticks.

Still farther out west, in Tappen British Columbia, was Brits In the Sticks. Frank French tripped out to BC in his friend`s MGF (I think it will spoil him badly, while he says it`s his wife that likes it).

Frank takes it from here.

I was out at the Brits in the Sticks this past weekend. Some great runs around Salmon Arm and Vernon.. and quite a few interesting cars. Only one Saloon though, a Jag Saloon, Mk 1 though I'm sure they didn't call it that back in the day. Really liked the gear shift for the auto transmission.

Couple of hard top Lotus, not sure which one I'd want.. not that anyone is likely to offer me one.

We went in one of my friends MGF's, the two seen in the parking lot before the start of the run though the hills around Vernon.. great weather and great cars.

The event is put on by a couple who do it all with a bit of pot luck at the end. Worth the nine hour drive the and back.

Though we came home to Snow.. didn't stay but it did fall..

British Car Day
Bronte Creek Provincial Park
Oakville ON

Time for the largest British Car Show in Southern Ontario.

Pre Register online
Mail in Register Form

British Car Council of Canada
3rd Annual Toy Drive

We would like to invite British car owners and members of British car clubs to join us.

When. On Sunday, October 5th, (rain or shine)

Where. The event will take place at the Country Heritage Park in Milton, Ontario, starting at 9:00am. (enter at the South entrance off Tremaine Road)

What you get.

Everyone in a British car, will get free admittance to the park. (normally, $8). Each person will be given a ticket for a number of draw prizes, to be held in the mid-afternoon.

The first 100 people to register, will be given tickets for tea/coffee and a doughnut in the morning. Also a ticket for a bowl of homemade soup, a bread roll and a dessert after the optional run returns. The park staff have very kindly given permission for us to use the old Ford garage, with its antique petrol pumps, for photo opportunities with our cars.

This year we’ll have entertainment supplied by the Oakville/Georgetown Celtic Fiddle Orchestra, and the Orange Peel Morris Dancers.

Cost. We ask that you bring a new, unwrapped gift for a child or a teenager, which will be collected as part of the Georgetown Salvation Army Toy Drive, or if you prefer you can make a cash or cheque donation on the day.

The onsite caterer will have some extra food for sale, but The Country Heritage Park is a lovely spot, and so you may want to pack a picnic.

Tour Master Paul Dullaert has organised an optional, but highly recommended, scenic drive through the Fall colours of the Niagara Escarpment, for a duration of an hour and ten minutes, to leave at Midday. When the tour returns, we’ll have lunch, draw the prizes and the rest of the afternoon you’ll be free to explore the park and the historic buildings and enjoy the entertainment.

Please plan to attend; this will likely be one of the last events of the year!

So let’s give some less fortunate children here in Ontario a great Christmas!

A man and a work-horse on Ryan`s Farm

I can`t tell you much more. Mr. Ryan was a standardbred stable owner and/or trainer around Edmonton in the early part of the 20th Century. The picture was taken on his farm in the warmer months of 1941.
