On August 4th, 5th and 6th, there was the 27th Annual Show and Shine in downtown Kamloops, BC and Hugh Gregory’s Review follows below …..

Kamloops Annual “hotnightinthecity” event

Tuesday, Aug 9th, 2022 at 08:16 PDT
 
Hot Nites in Kamloops Show and Shine on Saturday, August 6th was an amazing experience.  I have never seen so many Classic and Vintage cars in my life.  Something like 6 city blocks.
 
Tacked on at the west end was “Electric Avenue”.  A one block dog leg south off of Victoria on 2nd Ave between Victoria and Seymour.
 
We had lots of EV’s including the Electric Ford F-150.
 
According to the young summer student workers at the Sustainable Kamloops booth, the show stealers on Electric Avenue were the Electric Ford F-150 pick up truck and a Tesla Model-X that had its Falcon Wings doors up all day.  They told me those two were the big draws for stop and gawk all day long.
 
Myself and the other EV owners were kept busy all day, taking questions from many friendly inquiries and some interesting conversations with folks who are still hooked on petrol fumes.  Even had some fun with a hyper greenie, who complained to me that EV’s were not recyclable like ordinary cars are, in his (misguided) opinion.  I gently corrected some of his misinformation with Science fact.
 
BC Hydro had a booth as well as Sustainable Kamloops and several car dealerships, including Ford right next to their Electric F-150 Pickup truck.
 
Wish I had more photos for you but we were kept busy all day long.
 
My thanks to Jaimi Garbutt from City of Kamloops and Brock Nanson for putting together an amazing Electric Avenue display for Hot Nites 2022.
 
They did a great job, as did Jaimi’s two student helpers whose names I have forgotten (sorry about that).
 
Warmest regards,
Hugh
