With 10 vintage car owners showing their vehicles, recreation groups providing registration opportunities, local non profits and small businesses creating awareness of their services, there was a lot to see.

The Stuart Lake Sailing Club brought a unique boat to display. The Hobie Cat brand boat is like a kayak with outriggers for stability, has a mast and sail, and comes with pedals for times without wind.

Groups like minor hockey and women’s hockey were providing registration opportunities, as were the Stuart Lake Hospital Auxiliary, Friends of the Historic Site and others.

Some small businesses showcased their products as well.

The College of New Caledonia Professional Cook students prepared samples of freshly made crepes for visitors to the event and helped draw people to have a look at other programs the college is offering.
