The cars where scheduled to arrive at
Riverside Park at 2:00 pm.
Some did not visit River Bend or drive the proposed route through down town Kamloops.
This presented a slight problem as they arrived before the parking crew did and of course they
were not parked in the correct order or place.

It got straighten out and everything turned out okay.

The club vehicles did manage to park
 together up front.

Miss Kamloops while visiting the show was kind enough to pose with our vehicles.
Elaine Jones our "Sunshine Girl" is always appreciated as our
Easter Bunny

She said she forgot her basket but was not worried about losing the job
 as no other member in our club could fit in the costume.

Peter & Celine Sanderson looked great with their 1928 Model A Ford
Ken & Marge Hoshowski with the help of Kathy & Herman Kovacs did a great job of selling coffee and the many, many cookies the members had supplied.
 

The people of Kamloops love to see the cars.

The original Easter Parade (197) was sponsored by the Jaycees and it is beleived in 1974 or 1975
our Chapter took it over and has been providing Kamloops with
an Easter Parade ever since. (We had to missed 2 years because of covid)

I am sure it will happen all over again for 2023 Easter
