Long-term care residents enjoy a parade of classic cars.

Friday, June 19, 2020, featured great weather in Prince George and incredible classic cars touring the city’s long-term care homes!

The cars, which annually visit the facilities the Friday before Prince George’s Father’s Day Show-n-Shine, usually stop to let residents admire the vehicles’ interiors and exteriors. Because of restrictions related to COVID-19, this year the cars drove through the parking lots parade-style.

From inside a long-term care facility, a woman waves as classic cars drive through a parking lot. The driver of a blue car waves back.
The cars were enjoyed from outside and indoors.

The parade visited:

  • Gateway Lodge
  • Jubilee Lodge
  • Laurier Manor
  • Parkside Care
  • Rainbow Lodge
  • Simon Fraser Lodge
A group of seniors watch a line of classic cars drive by.
One of the "parade stands" set up to let residents get as close to the vehicles as possible. 

Thank you to all the drivers for taking the time to connect our residents to their past!
