Hope gears up for annual motorcycle show

There will be plenty of polished chrome to admire this weekend as the third annual Motorcycle Show & Shine takes over downtown Hope on Saturday.

The event attracts male and female riders from across the Fraser Valley and Fraser Canyon. It’s organized into six classes, and is open to all motorcycle models, sizes and powers.

“The bikes have personalities because for a lot of people, it’s their dream and vision of what a bike is and they do it through modifications,” said Victor Smith, president of the Hope & District Chamber of Commerce.

“Many of these people have spent a lot of time and money on these bikes. It’s a good day for them to get together and have fun.”

This year, the show is taking place in conjunction with a new barbecue cook-off and kids watermelon eating contest in Memorial Park.

The cook-off starts at 11 a.m., with judges awarding prizes in the afternoon. The watermelon eating contest, sponsored by Cooper’s Foods and Buy & Save Foods, begins at 2 p.m.

There will also be live music with Skinny’s Blues Crew throughout the day as well as belly dancing performances from Temple of the Belly.

The Motorcycle Show & Shine is sponsored by Mountainview Harley-Davidson, Hope & District Chamber of Commerce, and The Hope Standard.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 20 along Wallace Street, between Third and Fourth avenues.

For more information, call 604-869-3111.
