Car Show, Bed Races and other family fun in Bothwell, Ontario

Another Saturday, another car show and this one looks big and profitable!

This weekend the Optimist Club of Bothwell and District, Ontario, Canada are the hosts to the 19th annual Old Autos Car Show. More than 10,000 people are expected along with as many as 1,600 cars. According to Optimist spokesperson Larry Wolf many of the cars are for sale.

Along with the car show there is a old car parts swap meet with 370 vendors and the Bothwell Optifest that includes family fun activities like the annual bed race in Victoria Park.

The Bothwell Volunteer Firefighters' Association also benefits from this community event. They sell 50-50 raffle tickets and split the prize with a lucky winner.  In past years, that has been as much as $16,000.

Good luck and have fun!  I sure hope they send some pictures of the Bed Races.  :)
