Two Great Events, One Location

There is a new event this month!  The BCFDC’s Antique Truck Show and the Cowichan Valley Fire and Safety Fair will take place together on Saturday, August 21 and Sunday, August 22.

1949 Diamond T Logging Truck (BCFDC collection)
The event features displays of antique trucks from all over Vancouver Island including logging, industrial and fire trucks.  Visitors will have the unique opportunity to see the trucks in action as they parade around the museum’s 100-acre grounds.  Unlimited steam train rides are included in admission and are popular with people of all ages.

The Fire and Safety Fair will include displays of modern and antique fire trucks from 18 fire departments from the Malahat to North Oyster.  There will be children’s activities, the fire safety house, and an opportunity to talk to the firemen in person in Ladysmith.  The Cowichan Valley Fire Prevention Association organizes the Fire and Safety Fair to raise awareness about fire prevention and safety.

Hosting the events together will allow visitors to participate in two great events at the museum.  The Antique Truck Show and C.V. Fire and Safety Fair take place from 10 am to 4 pm both days.  Admission includes the truck show, fire and safety fair, full museum access, and unlimited train rides.
