Come and join us for an enjoyable experience in the seaside community of Oak Bay on beautiful Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. Once again the Portland MBCA Section will be participating in the Eighteenth Annual Oak Bay Collector Car Festival. This is a great opportunity to show your Mercedes in Canada.

Oak Bay is a charming municipality that borders the City of Victoria. It has a village appeal with superb art galleries and craft studios, cafes, and heritage homes. The Collector Car Festival draws about ten thousand spectators who can view roughly 275 cars that range from Rolls Royce to Deuce Coupes. There will be Mercedes Benz, Jaguar, and Aston Martin automobile sections for the public to enjoy. An exciting addition to the festival this year will be the Griot’s Garage Company displaying their car care products. The Griot products will also be available for purchase. Visit www.oakbaytourism.com for more information about Oak Bay.

A short drive from Oak Bay is the City of Victoria. There, activities abound from whale watching trips to airplane tours of southern Vancouver Island and the Straits of Juan De Fuca. Tourist activities, restaurants, events, and hotels can be found on the Tourism Victoria website: www.tourismvictoria.com .

July is prime tourist season in Victoria so it is essential that you make hotel and ferry reservations early! Please be advised to enter Canada you will need border documentation to clear Canadian Customs and return to the United States. A U.S. Passport or Passport Card is needed. Also, know that Canada has VERY strict laws regarding prohibited items, handguns, pepper spray, and knives to name a few. "KNOW BEFORE YOU GO" It's best to go to the Canadian Customs website to familiarize yourself with the law. It's also a good idea to go to the U.S. Customs website and see what you can legally bring into the U.S upon your return.

Last year several Portland section members displayed their cars at this show and enjoyed the car show and their stay in Victoria. We hope that you'll take this opportunity to enjoy a great time in Oak Bay Vancouver Island, B.C.
