Classic cars parked for a special day in Crescent Beach

SOUTH SURREY — The 2014 edition of Crescent Beach Concours d’elegance will feature dozens of classic cars this Saturday, Aug. 30.

The annual event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Blackie Spit Park.

The scenic beachside venue will be filled withdozens of vintage vehicles.

The single-day gathering is a "competition of elegance," with judging of dozens of invite-only vehicles in a number of classes.

In 2011, the Pelling Insurance-sponsored event was moved to Crescent Beach after eight years as the Steamworks Concours, held on the streets of Vancouver’s Gastown district.

"Continuing in the spirit of the former Steamworks Concours, the 2014 event (marks) the 12th year that we have brought together a Labour Day long weekend gatheringof collector automobiles and motorcycles," reads a post on the event website, Crescentbeachconcours. com.

"From applications, the committee will select up to 80 outstanding entrants.This year, as in the past, entrants will come from all over the West Coast of Canada and the United States, and cover a broad span of makes and years and included vehicles that are often rare and seldom seen by the public."

Proceeds from the 2013 event benefitted Alexandra Neighbourhood House at Crescent Beach.
