It’s the 100th Anniversary celebration of the Vancouver International Auto Show
and what better way to open a show then with a procession through the city!

The History of Auto opening procession presented by RBC will depart Crab Park at 11:00am on Wednesday March 25 with a Vancouver Police Department escort. They will make a right on Powell, head along Water and up Cambie. From there they will proceed along Pender to Burrard and arrive at the Vancouver Convention Centre by 11:30. We hope to see you along the route!

Can’t make the procession? Don’t worry, all the vehicles will be on display for the whole show out on the Pacific Terrace by the Ocra.

With highlight vehicles from each decade from the past 100 years, the procession is assembled to represent the changes in both domestic and import automobile design and manufacture including some well loved icons!
