Join the Alberta Diabetes Foundation for a Rock’N August!
Return to the carefree days of the past, remembering Elvis, Fats Domino, prom nights and sock hops make us appreciate what we had and yearn for again. But the past wouldn’t be the past without the automobiles that are now classic, expensive and treasured by their owners. Tender, loving care is the only way to describe the treatment afforded these cars – one cannot look at them without memories of the past flooding back and in the distance, the sound of Rock and Roll.
The event takes place in the City of St. Albert from August 5th – 9th, 2008.
