The Easter bunny isn’t the only thing cruising around Saskatchewan this weekend.

The 60th Draggins Annual Rod and Custom Car Show is in Saskatoon for two days. After having a two-year break due to COVID, people are happy to be back seeing and learning about cars.

“I’ve been talking to a lot of people, seeing a lot of stuff, stopping at the venues, asking questions, seeing what you can do to modify a car,” said Randy Fehr, a visitor.

Participants prove they’ve worked hard on their cars. With some using the past two years to get their cars ready for the first show back.

“Through COVID, that’s when I built this car. I’ve built lots and lots of cars throughout the years, but when we got laid off, that’s what helped me finish this car,” Thomas said.

All participants are competing in categories including best paint, best engine compartment, and best engineered.
