Retrofest...Worth the Drive!


So this is our absolute FAVOURITE weekend in Chatham. It is Retrofest and the city is hopping. The weekend begins Friday night with a cruise. Thousands of vintage and classic cars come from all over to show their stuff! You may even see a car like the one to the left. This is a car owned by Miss Florence Pickles (love the name!) All of her cars were made especially for her with British Racing Green exteriors and green leather interiors. What a woman!
Then there is a movie in Tecumseh Park. This years feature is Dirty Dancing....an all time classic. My favourite line of the entire movie is when Baby first meets Johnny and says "I carried the watermelon". Lame I know, but that is what makes it so funny. Gets me every time!

Saturday night King Street and various sides streets will be closed and hundreds of cars race to get prime spots to park for the day. Thousands of people come out to see the cars and take advantage of the amazing shopping. Many of the stores are offering TAX FREE shopping. And we are no exception. Stop in any day this week and enjoy tax free savings. We also have a ton of amazing in store specials including 50% off the lowest price of items in our sales bin. I think I saw some items in there are 85% off!

Sunday you can visit the reason why Chatham is called Canada's Car Capital....RM Classic Car Exhibit is opening its door to the public. And for those of you who love "the hogs", stop in next door at Dukes Harley Davidson store. I have to admit I have never been to RM and I hope to venture in this weekend.

So for those of you that have never been to Chatham before, why not come and see the city at its best? Grab the keys to your dads MG, put the top down and enjoy the sunshine! Ans hey, why not stop by The Pickle to say hi....oh yeah...did you hear we had a secret? Just ask Kell what that's all about!
