Each year the show attracts vintage tractors from not only the Cowichan Region but also from other Vancouver Island Vintage Machinery Clubs. �Everyone with old tractors is invited to the museum. This year we�re expecting tractors from Nanaimo, Courtenay and Campbell River, and the event continues to grow every year� says Geoff Hopps, event organizer.

Visitors from all over Vancouver Island will enjoy the activities planned for this year�s event. �We always like to add to the visitor experience and this year Home Depot has made our Fathers Day even more special with the addition of the Fathers Day Gift Building Event� says Anthony Bone, Manager of the BC Forest Discovery Centre. �Kids will be able to build a Home Depot sponsored �Build Dad a Gift� project. There a few different kids projects to choose from, but there is only one project per family to be built while supplies last. It�s a fun team building project for the whole family�

�At the BC Forest Discovery Centre local residents and members play the biggest role in supporting the museum through their repeat visits and attending our special events. It�s why our memberships are such a great value both through family and our corporate memberships.� Visitors to this years festivities will enjoy the collection of vintage tractors, the tractor parades, slow races, the concession and Home Depot�s Build Dad a Gift. It�s going to be a great event to celebrate Fathers Day with your Dad and the whole family�
