A tra­di­tion go­ing back years is in the spring, Drumheller gear­heads gets ready to Boo­gie.

The Boo­gie in the Bad­lands is get­ting ready for an­other year, and or­ga­niz­ers have been busy pre­par­ing for the an­nual car show, with some new blood or­ga­niz­ing the event.

Mike Todor has taken on the task of putting on the Boo­gie, and plan­ning is go­ing well. He is be­ing helped along by former or­ga­nizer Bryan Telford, who no longer lives in the val­ley.

The “Spring Thaw” car show is slated to go on Satur­day, May 27 in down­town Drumheller. The show in­vites all makes and mod­els to come down to be seen and ap­pre­ci­ated by car en­thu­si­asts. The show is also open to mo­tor­cy­cles.

“Usu­ally we get cars,” said Todor.

He says there will be prizes for the best Ford, Chev, and Chrysler prod­ucts, spon­sored 100-150 by the re­spec­tive deal­er­ships, as well as a Peo­ple’s Choice award. They have also added a mo­tor­cy­cle prize.

Along with the fine rub­ber and steel on dis­play, there will be mu­sic as the Cat Coun­try band re­turns for the show. The Le­gion is plan­ning to have a beer gar­den open for the show. To en­ter your car in the show is only $10, and this year the funds will go to­ward the Dino Arts As­so­ci­a­tion for its work to pre­serve and beau­tify the val­ley.

The Boo­gie in the Bad­lands is back for 2017. On May 27, Cen­tre Street in Down­town Drumheller will be lined with the finest cars, trucks, rods and mo­tor­cy­cles seen any­where.
