On Saturday, May 20 the streets of the Village of Morrin will be lined with rubber, chrome and Detroit Iron as the second annual Morrin Show and Shine takes over the village.
Mayor Chris Hall is working on organizing the event. Last year they started the show and shine and it was a success with 55 exhibitors.
This year the momentum has grown, and they are looking at an even bigger show.
Mayor Hall says the community has gotten behind the event. The Morrin Firefighters will be hosting a barbecue fundraiser. The hall will be open for vendors, and many in the community are planning yard and garage sales. The Morrin Historical Centre will open, and food trucks are invited.
“It is getting bigger and bigger every year…the whole community is getting behind it,” said Hall.
He says the event is more than just a day of fun and looking at hot rods. It is also to showcase the village.
With the addition of the new school being built, it offers more trades training and more reasons to be interested in Morrin. He has been working hard to promote the event and the village, and the economic opportunities.
The show goes from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and there is a minimal $5 registration fee.
Hall says this is just the kick-off to the summer in Morrin.
The Morrin Homecoming, after a couple of false starts caused by the pandemic, is slated for this August, and Hall says they are expecting up to 2,000 visitors.
