The 16th annual Beverly Corners Show & Shine hits the field of the Cowichan Sportsplex on Sunday, Aug. 16 this year.

From Little Deuce Coupes to 409s, from trucks to motorcycles, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. you’ll see them all there and everything else in between.

With the Cowichan Cruisers jumping aboard to help organize the event, there are many exciting changes for this year’s show.

These include: a $500 Prize for Best of Show, 26 judged categories to ensure everyone has a fair chance with prizes for each category, car club pre-registration, motorcycle categories, dash plaques for the first 200 entrants and much more.

Admission for cars is $15 at the gate ($10 per car with club preregistration), while for spectators it’s a donation of cash or a non-perishable item for the food bank.

The gates open at 8 a.m. with registration closing and judging starts at 10:30 a.m. Prizes will be handed out at 1:30 p.m.

Cars will still be allowed in after 10:30 a.m. but will not be eligible for judging, organizers say.

There will be a live band providing entertainment and the annual visit by the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock riders will occur about 2 p.m., according to organizers.
