The classic car crowd is eager to get back into Northwest Deuce Days.
Since the last show in 2019, organizers say “much has changed” but the event remains the same. The pandemic in 2020 and 2021 and the world economy have certainly changed many other things since 2019.
The car show and parade aspect of Deuce Days in Langford is in its 10th year. A special 90th anniversary celebration of the Deuce is part of this year’s festivities.
On Saturday July 16 the show route starts in downtown Victoria at 9 am and will make its way along Goldstream Avenue in Langford between 10 am and 12 noon, depending on various travel conditions.
There will be a road closure on Goldstream Avenue from Peatt Road to Veterans Memorial Parkway, from 9 am to 1 pm.
