UPDATE JUNE 26, 2022 – According to show organizer and Chilliwack BIA Director Trevor McDonald, The 2022 Fortin’s Classic car show broke records as it returned to the streets of Chilliwack. The 2018 show was the last live one. 2019 was rained out and COVID restrictions cancelled 2020 and 2021.

By 7 AM over 400 vehicles were registered. The official number is 450 and a number of drivers who thought they could simply drive into the show, were stymied at the gates, as there was no more room to accommodate them. The crowd estimates were over 5000 visitors by Noon. That number is sure to be updated.

Other pleasant surprises included Freshslice Pizza showing off their new digs at the old sports bar on Five Corners which has had a number of incarnations. It will continue to be a sports bar in the near future with pizza in the back.

With District 1881 construction as well as the building of the Paramount Project, parking was an issue, although there were only a few vocal complainers.
