Fort Rodd Hill hosting annual luxury car show this Sunday

Calling all Cadillac aficionados.  The Vancouver Island chapter of the Cadillac Car Club of B.C. is hosting its annual Cadillac show this Sunday (July 12) at Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse Historical Site.

The event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., features all things Cadillac, including 100 vehicles ranging from the sleek roadsters of the ’30s to the classics of the ’50s and more.

There will be plenty of pastels, chrome and fins on display at this popular family event,  as well as professional limousines and coaches.

The event, in its 12th year, is Canada’s largest Cadillac car show, said chapter president Dewane Ollech.

“We actually got a call a few years ago from the Cadillac chapter in Toronto,” he said. “They couldn’t believe we could get more than 100 cars to a show on an island, when they had trouble getting 80 from the greater Toronto area. Cadillac owners, like all car club members, are pretty passionate, whatever the brand.”

There will be entertainment featuring rock band Rukus, and food services are available.

All proceeds from the show go to the Greater Victoria Eldercare Foundation.

Admission to the show is included in the regular charge for admission to Fort Rodd Hill, which is $3.90 for adults, $3.40 for seniors and $1.90 for children.

“Families can take in the car show, Fort Rodd, Fisgard Lighthouse and support a worthy cause,” Ollech said. “It’s a win-win for everyone.”

Patrons are reminded that dogs are not permitted on the site.
