Draggins Rod & Custom Car Show

  On the Seventh Day, street rodders were created.  An energetic people who would drag an old wreck out of the bush with the incredible idea that they could make something special out of it.  After days, weeks, months, maybe even years, of thinking, shaping, fitting, rethinking, remaking, refitting and finally finishing: Ah!a special car is created, like an artist creates a picture or a sculptor creates a piece of art. In the course of all this, they discovered that this common interest could be pursued more enjoyably as a club than as individuals.
The Draggins Rod & Custom Car Show is the longest running club operated car show in Canada, the first being held in 1961. It is a diversified family show with exhibits from all over Canada and the U.S.A.and is traditionally held on the Friday and Saturday of Easter weekend at Prairieland ParkThe show is packed with hot rods, customs, antiques, muscle, classic vehicles and much, much more. Many faithful fans return every year to watch and cheer at the Battle of the Automotive Technicians. The children enjoy the Hot Wheel toys given out to the first 2000 youngsters under the age of 16, accompanied by an adult, each day.  It also reflects a sense of community with exhibits from groups such as the Saskatoon Police Department Traffic Division and the Saskatchewan Government Insurance Vehicle Safety Division Driver Examiners and Salvage Department, there to answer your questions and provide you with the necessary safety and legal issues to be aware of when restoring your special interest or custom vehicles.  You may be able to view the deployment of a vehicle air bag or see a demonstration of a vehicle roll-over showing the effects of using using your seatbelts at all times.  The Draggins strive to continue adding new and varied entertainment for all vehicle enthusiasts to come out and enjoy.  Hope to see you there.  If you want to know more about the club, here is the contact information:Draggins Car ClubBox 1682, Saskatoon, Sk, S7K 3R8(306) 242-7586www.draggins.com
