Show ‘n Shine prevails weather

It was rather difficult to shine during Pas Ka Poo Park’s annual show ‘n shine held earlier this month.

Rodger Sherba won Peoples Choice Award at Pas Ka Poo Park’s show and shine held earlier this month for his 1978 Ford Ranger.

It was rather difficult to shine during Pas Ka Poo Park’s annual show ‘n shine held earlier this month as the rain put a damper not only on people, but on their vehicles as well.

However, park administrator Cheryl Jones said about 15 dedicated people participated, despite the wet conditions.

The best car award went to Bob Hyndman for his Tiffany Classic. The best truck award was won by Wendy Park-Ramage with her 1948 Chevrolet and best in show award went to Roger Serba with his 1978 Ford.

Participants came from Rimbey as well as Rocky Mountain House, Red Deer and other surrounding areas.

“We had some people phone and cancel because of the weather,” said Jones.

Unfortunately, the show ‘n shine was the parks final fundraiser of the season.

However, the park will still be busy all summer with weddings, the Saturday Farmers Market and groups who come to tour the facility.

“The sidewalks we had put in, thanks to Ponoka County, makes it much easier for seniors, especially those in walkers and wheelchairs, to get around,” said Jones.

Vehicles from the Smithson International Truck Museum will participate in neighbouring parades this year, she said.

Jones noted that Rimbey International Truck Museum is an accredited information centre. She said several vehicles from the museum will be entered in neighbouring parades.
