The Woodridge Community Club, together with the Woodridge Firefighters Association, is hosting its 2nd annual Car Show on the Ridge this Saturday, May 27 starting at 11 a.m. at the M.A. Querel Community Park in Woodridge.
In addition to auto enthusiasts from across Manitoba and Northwest Ontario showcasing rare, unique and vintage automobiles, this event is also a fundraiser in support of a couple of community initiatives. One of those is raising money toward the purchase of a thermal imaging camera for the Woodridge Fire Department. A thermal imaging camera is a type of the thermographic camera used in firefighting. It can be used to search victims outdoors on a cool night, spot smoldering fires inside a wall or detect overheating electrical wiring.
In 2022, there were 147 cars registered, and over 400 people who attended the event. Enough money was raised to purchase a community accessible AED (Automated Electronic Defibrillator) which is housed at the Vintage Corner Store in Woodridge.
In addition to the car show with trophies being awarded in three categories (Best Car, Best Truck and People’s Choice), Car Show on the Ridge has other planned activities including a tailgate swap meet, BBQ Lunch, Silent Auction and more.
Car show registration is $5/vehicle and includes a souvenir dash plaque. Admission for the public is free.
