15th Annual Show n Shine!
The Queen City Cruise has continued to grow since the first cruise in 2003. Car collectors from far and wide find the appeal to show off their cars in the Heritage City. Nelson offers big city cosmopolitan dining, unique and original shopping experiences and comfortable lodging all on our beautiful setting of Kootenay Lake.
The Cruise starts out annually on the second weekend of September. Pre-registration with a get together at the Bogustown Restaurant and Lounge in Fairview is Friday at 2 o'clock.
Saturday morning begins our Show and Shine on historic Baker Street in the downtown heart of Nelson. Trophy presentations are at approximately 3:30 pm followed by a poker run and later on in the evening, a rooftop dance at the Nelson Parkade.
Most of our attendees thus far hail from Washington, Idaho, Southern British Columbia and Southern Alberta. Band: 2015 band to be decided. Advance Tickets recommended (we always sell out).
Also on every dance ticket is a free taxi ride stub sponsored by Kootenay Insurance Services.
