Downtown was the place to be this past Sunday for lovers of vintage cars or music because the Revelstoke Vintage Car Club (RVCC) and the Bygone Era Entertainment Society (BEES) were hosting similarly different and uniquely interesting events.
Over 100 cars brought in by owners from Revelstoke and around the Okanagan were proudly displayed along Mackenzie Avenue and First Street West downtown as part of the first annual Mountain Paradise Car Show.
RVCC president and event organizer Dennis Beraducci explained that the cars would judged in a number of categories, including best paint job, best vintage, best hot rod and people’s choice.
If the cars weren’t enough to get you reminiscing about the good old days, how about some music from the 1950s, 60s and 70s?
Hosted by the Nickelodeon Museum, the BEES held their first major event, Dancing in the streets. A juke box played familiar-to-some tunes and captivated spectators who stopped to listen and admire the vintage machines. Some people took advantage of the rubber dance floor outside on First Street to literally dance in the streets.
