Lamoureux Park to host Kinsmen in Motion Show and Shine on Sunday, August 25th

Kinsmen in Motion

Car lovers will have reason to cheer on Sunday, August 25th as muscle cars assemble in Lamoureux Park for the first-ever Kinsmen in Motion Show and Shine.

In addition to the traditional car show, the Show and Shine will also feature food vendors, live music – courtesy of Cornwall’s own Switchgear beginning at 1:30 pm – and a large kids’ zone featuring  a giant inflatable slide, a Hot Wheels drag track, a magic show and other play features. The event runs from 9 am to 4 pm (rain or shine), and admission is free.

The idea for the event came courtesy of Kinsmen Club member and classic car enthusiast Jody Archambault. A participant in car shows himself with his ‘93 Mustang hatch back, Mr. Archambault saw potential to host a car-themed event in Cornwall’s picturesque waterfront park. And he believes it can eventually become a huge draw – similar events in other communities often draw tens of thousands of visitors.

“It’s a way of attracting people to the community,” he said. “I’m hoping next year we can bring it to the next level.”

If the weather cooperates, Mr. Archambault said there could be upwards of 200 vehicles on display for the event, along with motorcycles and other vehicles.

Aside from some help from Mother Nature, Mr. Archambault is hoping residents will come out and support the event in order to ensure it becomes a staple of Cornwall’s summer events calendar.

“It’s going to be a great family event,” he added.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District.
