Lloyd Smith – Town Crier   Leave a comment

Lloyd Smith - Town Crier

In past years we have been honoured to have the event kicked off by Annapolis Valley’s Town Crier, Lloyd Smith. He has always been a favourite of the crowd and has added a wonderful historical element to the day. This year we will once again kick the show off with this traditional opening, however, we have a surprise Town Crier, and I think Lloyd would be proud.

Car Rick would most like to drive home award – 1976 TR6   Leave a comment

A few years ago the festival had some drops of rain fall, which resulted in a few cars being covered to protect them from the elements. One such car was the 1976 TR6 of Jim Turnbull of NB. As a result of this it was chosen by Rick for his annual ‘Car Rick would most like to drive home’ award. Visit http://www.classicmotorart.ca to see more of Rick’s work.
