Labour Day car cruise event in downtown Oshawa in support of Canadian Automotive Museum

With no Kars on King for the second year in a row – and no BIA to run it – That Little Grey Car and a few of its friends will be hosting a Car Cruise through the streets of downtown Oshawa on Labour Day in support of the Canadian ASutomotive Museum.

The cruise, which is free for all classic and summer fun cars, will start at the museum’s parking lot at 99 Simcoe Street South on September 6 before heading north on Simcoe to King Street. The procession then turns east to Cedarcroft Place at 649 King Street East for a drive-by through the senior centre’s parking lot to “brighten the day of local seniors.”

The procession will then continue east on King Street to the Courtyard Pub (east of Townline Road in Courtice) for lunch.

Kars on King, along with its sister event Bikes on Bond, were the biggest events on Oshawa’s Downtown BIA calendar pre-COVID, as thousands of residents and visitors would head downtown to see hundreds of classic cars on display on the closed-off streets.

The pandemic put the events on hold and then the City of Oshawa disbanded the BIA last year.

The Canadian Automotive Museum is a not-for-profit charity in operation in downtown Oshawa since 1963.
