If it’s on wheels, it’s welcome at Wheel-O-Rama.
The third annual car show, presented by VITV, will be held Saturday, July 13 at the Beban Park fairgrounds.
The event, free to the public, is a fundraiser for the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation and Hugginz by Angel Foundation.
Allen Felker, owner of VITV, said in a press release that Wheel-O-Rama is a ‘not-to-be-missed’ community event. He said a reason for starting the event was that while he has enjoyed many great classic car shows, he wanted a show where any type of ride was welcome.
“We want to provide a place for the backyard mechanics to show their projects and other clubs that may not fit into the classic category to come to,” Felker said. “The response from the Island, BC has been amazing so there should be quite a variety of vehicles this year for all to see with a few surprises.”
B.C. Hydro noted in a press release that representatives will be at the event encouraging people to learn more about electric vehicles and take part in an electric vehicle test drive.
Wheel-O-Rama takes place from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For information, visit www.wheelorama.ca or call 250-802-9558.
