The Grey Bruce Sunset Cruisers will be presenting their annual Fall Colours Classic Car Tour on Sunday September 26th and will include an end-of-day showing at the Wiarton Keppel Airport. This event is in support of Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce and will be the last of three such tours presented this year. This tour will introduce participants to the incomparable beauty of old Keppel Township in north Grey County.
This will be a scramble tour in that participants will gather at different staging areas and determine a preferred route from the maps supplied. Participants are encouraged to travel on their own or in groups, make many stops along the way, and keep their camera ready; surprise opportunities abound everywhere. The map provided by Crime Stoppers volunteers will show several stop points of particular interest and motorists may wish to linger a little longer to take in the spectacular vistas and stunning fall colours.
The lands on the Keppel peninsula are a very storied part of Grey County. From the initial 1857 purchase from the Chipawa (Ojibway) Nation to the sale of the 100 acre parcels of surveyed lands the township has slowly revealed the colourful scenic vistas we see today. With Colpoy’s Bay to the west, Georgian Bay to the north and Owen Sound harbour to the east this peninsula boasts the most breathtaking and varied scenery in the least amount of space in the province. It is this condensed beauty that visitors are encouraged to appreciate, not only on this particular day but throughout the four seasons.
Public Car Show
The Municipality of Georgian Bluffs will welcome participants to display their vehicles at the Wiarton Keppel International Airport at the conclusion of the tour. Starting at 2:00 PM the public will also be invited to view these classic pieces of art on wheels.
Restaurant and food truck services will be available along with limited washroom facilities. Current Covid-19 protocols will apply.
