Car Fever at Loch Lomond Shores

It's car fever at Loch Lomond Shores, Balloch, this May bank holiday weekend! With classic cars on display and a charity car boot sale, it will be a fantastic day for all the family on Sunday 5th May.

From 10am to 2pm, Loch Lomond Shores will be opening its overflow car park for a car boot sale in aid of the West Dunbartonshire branch of Down's Syndrome Scotland. Event organiser, Christina Logan from Jamestown, is raising money to support projects in the area for children with Down's Syndrome and their families.

Christina says, "This is the first time I've organised an event like this for the charity and I am really looking forward to it. I'm overwhelmed with the support and interest I've received so far, but if anyone else would like to give their house a spring clean and take a pitch, then please get in touch. I want to raise as much money as possible for this amazing charity'.

Loch Lomond Shores is once again hosting the annual Ford Fiesta MK1 car show which will take place on the Gathering from 9am. Over 50 proud owners of the cars manufactured between 1976 and 1983, will be driving to Loch Lomond Shores from all over the UK to meet fellow car owners and enthusiasts.

Loch Lomond Shores Manager, Clare Gemmell, says, "We're delighted to welcome back the Ford Fiesta MK1 car owners and their families. This classic car show attracts a huge crowd every year and there's no better location for them than at Loch Lomond Shores".

As well as these fantastic events on Sunday 5th May, it will also be the perfect chance to shop the new collections in the shops and stock up on delicious seasonal produce from local suppliers at the farmers' market.
