Meet the Mile Zero Cruisers Car Club
The Mile Zero Cruisers Car Club is a group of vehicle enthusiasts based in Dawson Creek. For over 20 years, this non-profit society has dedicated itself to the betterment of the community by holding multiple fundraising initiatives throughout the city. The two biggest events held by the Mile Zero Cruisers are their famous ‘Summer Cruise Show and Shine’ and their annual ‘Cruiser Christmas Toy Drive’.
“Every year during the second weekend in July, we host our Summer Cruise Show and Shine," says Cruisers director, Judy McPherson. “It’s a three-day event where the Cruisers welcome riders from all over into our community. The event is capped off on Sunday when the city closes the downtown to help us celebrate. The tradition has grown from just three cars to hopefully 500 this year! Our Show and Shine is Dawson Creek’s second largest event,” she explains.
“This all started over 25 years ago when a couple of guys were just hanging out and talking cars,” explains Judy. “It’s grown from us needing two city blocks to us needing 10 or 12! We bring in a lot of tourism and economic value to the city. People will come here for the cruise and leave and spread the word about how great of a community we are.”
“We donate to everything from local charities to our high schools,” states Judy. “Our club supports the people of Dawson Creek and the surrounding areas. It’s all about the people. It’s a chance for car owners to get together and do great things for our community. It’s nice to be able to share a common denominator with other people. We all like our vehicles and we all like to drive. It’s just a great group to be around."
Passionate. Exciting. Thrilling.
