. . . .

From 10 am to 3 pm, Ladysmith’s famous downtown turns into not just a classic car dreamers heaven but a great stroll along our tree-lined casual main street featuring many businesses, restaurants, and shops that will be catering to locals and visitors alike.

Members of the Ladysmith Lions Club will be on hand, as they have done for years, with their concession trailer cooking up hamburgers and hot dogs along with cold drinks for the crowd. This year they will also show off their very special “Breakfast Sandwich” for early risers as well as for participants who will start arriving at 8 am to register. The Breakfast Sandwich, featuring eggs and bacon, was a huge success last year and it will be available all day from the Lions Club concession.
