Nine Things You Can Expect at This Year's Quilt Walk & Car Show
The Ladner Business Association’s 12th annual Quilt Walk and Car Show kicks off on Sunday August 21st at 10am-4pm. Thousands are expected to flock to Ladner’s Historic Village this weekend to admire the many intricate quilts and spectacular vintage cars on display.
With this year’s event set to be bigger and with more things to do and see than ever before, we have compiled a list of nine things you can expect at 2016's Quilt Walk and Car Show. You will not want to miss it!
The shops along 48th avenue are expected to be a temporary home for the hundreds of colorful quilts that will be hanging on display. Feast your eyes on even more mixtures of patterns and colours as this year’s quilt walk is expected to be even bigger due to plans to spread the location of the quilts to a variety of new spots.

Ladner’s own Four Winds Brewing Co. will be presenting the first ever taco-eating competition. Set to take place at the beer gardens, the contest will feature 8 hungry contestants who will feast on as many tacos as they can eat for 5 minutes. This new event is set to be a real crowd-pleaser and should not be missed.

One word to describe the food trucks that are expected to serve up some chow? YUM. Indulge in the most mouth-watering food from some of the finest food trucks in the lower mainland. From hot dogs to popsicles and everything else in between, your diet can start on Monday.
You can expect to see: Zee’s Grilled Cheese, Eli’s Serious Sausage, Johnny’s Pops, C’est Si Bon, Old Country Perogi, and more!
The ladies will be wearing their vintage-inspired Sunday best at the pin-up competition beginning at 12:30pm. You’ll feel as though you stepped back in time as you witness the girls walking past the retro cars as these ladies would have given even Betty Paige a run for her money.
Don’t go home empty handed. A number of nifty vendors are scheduled to set up shop and are selling a variety of interesting trinkets and collectables. From My License Plate Art to Steveston Tattoo Company, these retro and vintage-inspired vendors are sure to be a hit.

Like every year, you can expect to see many smiling faces and automotive-enthusiasts walking amongst the cars in Ladner Village. While Ladner locals are expected to flood the streets, competitors and spectators have come from all over the province to share their appreciation for Quilts and Cars. Like always, this event will surely be fun for the entire family.
Of course, come to a car show and you can expect to see cars – hundreds of them! Ladner is set to welcome close to 400 classic cars and motorcycles. You will be oohing and aweing over all of these retro automobiles as soon as you lay your eyes on them.
