Once again the boys and girls with all the hot cars brought the sunshine with them to Metro Moncton. The 2009 Atlantic Nationals are here to thrill auto buffs in the area. What is this super event you ask? Well its grown to become one of Canada's largest display of polished up automotive metal in one place. Several blocks of Main Street were closed all day as over 1800 autos of all types and vintages lined up to be admired by crowds that grew as the day went on. Tonight several bands hit the stage until midnightish. Tomorrow and Sunday the cars move to Centennial Park for more showin' and shinin'. I walked throught downtown today with my wife and admired the cars and took a few photos which I have posted in the Moncton Gallery on my website.
One of the car owners told me they would have over 1800 cars here this year. I'm sure it's hard to get a hotel room in town and the restaurants will be extra busy with all the additional traffic. It is events like this that help push Metro's tourist industry higher each year. Two big thumbs up for all the organizers of this event.
