PARTICIPANT PARKING
When you arrive at the gate tell them you want to go to the car corral and they will direct you all the way around the track to the correct section.
Music must be kept at a level appropriate to respect the others around you.
We park them as they come in the gate, if you want to park with your friends, then you need to arrive with your friends. It’s first come first park.

 TENT SPACES
*NEW* as of 2012 due to the shortage of space – All tents “sun shelters” are to be place behind your car, not beside the car. We tried this in 2012 and it worked very well.  Almost everyone co-operated.
If you need to put your tent beside your vehicle you will need to purchase a tag for your tent you can do so in advance by phone – 519-342-1284

WELCOME PACKAGE
There will be a registration form for next year’s show available at the participant registration booth.
The first 1000 cars will receive a plaque.
