It is the middle of the car show season, and we are pleased to have covered the third annual, Paws to the Pedal car show. This show truly brings together the car community in a way that no other local show can. Many types of cars will attend, many will put aside their differences and begin to create connections. All thanks to the furry friends that we as car enthusiasts came to support.
D’Arcy’s A.R.C. has been rescuing stray animals and adopting them to loving families for years, and they are always in need of donations and supplies. Paws to the Pedal has always been a great way for the car community to give back to a shelter that does amazing work. This year’s turnout was fantastic, and showed how getting together for a cause can make a difference.
Pets are always welcome at this car show, and there were plenty in attendance. You couldn’t look anywhere without seeing a pet alongside their owner. It was a great ice breaker for introductions to new people, and was a blast to have been a part of!
This year we were joined by members of 403 Media whom brought their unique vehicles, NVUS showed up with a good portion of their local crew, as well as members from almost every local car group in Winnipeg. Little Bones made sure we were fed, and RESET Ultralounge took care of accommodations such as drinks and games, as well as the soccer game on the TV. All of the clubs that came, and services the vendors provided were appreciated!
People meeting their friends, exploring cars that we have not seen locally, people meeting and connecting for the first time, cars cleaned up as best as they can be, all while enjoying good music and a good cause. This is what makes up Paws to the Pedal, and this year definitely did not disappoint! Thanks to the people whom were involved with setting this up, and to the volunteers.
Winnipeg is home to a great car scene, and the Motive Empire team is committed to capturing the stories behind the cars. We’ve still got our coverage of Driven 2016 coming, stay tuned!
