Yes, spring is coming to Oxford in the way of the “Spring into Oxford Event on Sunday" and brings a display of well cared for and loved classic and vintage cars into the Oval at Pearson Park for car enthusiasts.

Music, market stalls, demonstrations, entertainment, pony rides, puppet show, Adam Allsorts Clown. Come and enjoy and day in the country. Dress up in your spring bonnet.

Oxford Spinning Group will be demonstrating throughout the event, also lace making and folk art demonstrations as well.

The event is organised by the Oxford Promotions Action Committee as a fund raiser for the Oxford Community Men’s Shed. Men’s Shed Chairperson and car enthusiast Trevor Scott says car clubs from around Canterbury have been invited to the event. “The clubs really enjoy coming out for the day. It gives the Shed an opportunity to raise some much needed funds, promote the men's shed concept, and also gives people the opportunity to display their cars at a cost of $5. If it has wheels and is vintage or classic please bring it along and enjoy yourself at the same time.”

A Spring Bonnet competition has been organised so come along with your fancy headgear, you just might win a prize. Judging is at 1:30 pm. The Rangiora Brass Band is making an appearance as well as the Oxford Line Dancers doing a spot at 11 am. Professor Punchinello (alias Jason Clements) is performing his puppet show at 11:30 am. 1 pm is the spot prize draw for the car show owners.

It’s a fun, family atmosphere from 10 am - 2 pm with music, market stalls, arts and crafts, face painting, pony rides by Wee Dram Farm and petting animals. Kid’s old fashioned games and rides. Adam Allsorts, the clown, will be doing his bit with balloon tying, magic tricks, juggling etc as well as a lolly scramble. All going well there will be a goat milking demonstration.

Public entry is gold coin donation at the entrances to help with expenses.
