You asked, we listened!
Over the years, we have used a lot of the feedback that we have received to make steady and continous improvements to the show, and this year is no exception. Based on the feedback that we have received, we are pleased to announce the following new elements to our show:
 
Safety Lanes/Drive Through Judging
Drive Through Judging has been added to the Safety Lanes on Friday at the Highfield Square Parking Lot. The hours have also expanded for Saturday in the park. All lanes will be closed on Sunday.
 
Registration Changes
The terrific volunteers who man the front gates, and the Riverview Lion's Club, have agreed to make things much more streamlined on Sunday and Registration will now take place at Centennial Park for that day. Please note that registration will take place as normal on Thursday-Saturday at our new location, the Moncton Wesleyan Celebration Centre, 945 St. George Blvd.
 
Award Ceremony
The Awards Ceremony continues to evolve and streamline. Everything will now get underway at the stage in the main park area (Cool Car College stage), next to the Atlantic Nationals playground. We will also be changing up the entire program to make it more efficient.
