The show was on the newly paved and redeveloped Water St. behind the Kaslo Hotel with Kootenay Lake as our backdrop.  There was music all weekend long at various venues, and of course, British cars and bikes galore.

Many thanks to the Village of Kaslo and the Kaslo Chamber of Commerce and the many Kaslo Businesses for the support and sponsorship of the show, which without their help, would not have happened. We also had another sternwheeler, a little newer (grin) than the Moyie, sailing by, on Kootenay Lake, behind the cars, during the afternoon. It was built by a local resident, Dave May, who was very obliging to show off his marvelous project while the show was in progress, and I heard quite a few good comments about his "sternwheel" venture which added to the ambience of the idealic setting of Kaslo.
