Car enthusiasts will be flocking to Sidney this weekend for a car show in the town’s core.
The Torque Masters Sidney Summer Car Show is taking place Sunday afternoon, with a mini car show and event also occurring Saturday.
On Saturday, some participants will be participating in a “poker run,” which sees motorists driving through the Saanich Peninsula.
The poker run starts at 2:30 p.m. at the Mary Winspear Centre before returning to 3rd Street between Beacon Avenue and Sidney Avenue at approximately 3:30 p.m.
3rd Street will be closed from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m. for a mini car show Saturday.
On Saturday evening, there will also be a movie night at Star Cinema in Sidney, with admission of cash or non-perishable food going towards the Saanich Peninsula Lions Food Bank.
A children’s car-related movie will kick off at 4 p.m., followed by an adult car-related movie at 6 p.m.

The main car show event kicks off in Sidney from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday along Beacon Avenue.
More than 300 vehicles participated in last year’s event, and this year’s show also includes merchant booths and live music.
Some of the vendors include Street Art Designs, Ignited Garage, Holy Cow Mini Donuts and Lucas’s T-shirts.
