The PNE has announced another drive-thru event, this one to celebrate Father’s Day.

They are calling it the CAR-B-Q edition, which is a combination of barbecue and a custom car show that will run from June 18 to the 21.

Customers can pre-order a package that includes barbecue ribs, poutine or mac and cheese from some of the fair’s usual food vendors and pick it up during a specific time slot.

There will also be a custom car show on site.

“People have come from Pemberton, Chilliwack, all the way from the Interior, it’s been overwhelming,” said PNE spokesperson Laura Ballance May 24.
