You couldn’t have asked for a better day for the 2nd Annual Little Chicago Show and Shine presented by the Downtown Moose Jaw Association.
The sun was shining over downtown Moose Jaw as over 400 hot rods, rat rods, muscle cars, trucks, and next-gen cars were shined up and being shown off to thousands upon thousands of Moose Javians and tourists.
“The day's been fantastic! We've had a lot of people come out to the event. Of course, we had a lot of registration,” said Alex Carleton, co-chair of the Little Chicago Show and Shine committee for the Downtown Moose Jaw Association.
“We had 400 cars registered today. One of the biggest car shows in Saskatchewan and I think a lot of it is because of our fantastic downtown,” Carleton added.

The Moose Jaw Motorcycle Association’s annual Salvation Army Toy Run once again made its way through the event. At 2 p.m. motorcyclists made their way up Main Street and drove to the Salvation Army church to donate toys.
