Yarmouth, Nova Scotia — The Yarmouth Car Show which will make its highly-anticipated return Saturday after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The weekend of auto festivities will informally kick off a night earlier on Friday with the club’s Classic Car Cruise, starting at 7 p.m.

“We’re getting a huge response,” said Dwayne Deveau, president of the Roaring 20’s Antique Auto Club. “People are calling, emailing. The motels and hotels are booked up.”
Attendees will be travelling to the show from across Atlantic Canada, with some arriving via ferry to the small port town. There will also be enthusiasts attending from across the province of Nova Scotia and of course, from Yarmouth itself.
The show will be handing out awards for some of the coolest cars, with prizes donated by the club. Prizes will be awarded at 2:30 p.m.
