An Armstrong shop is all revved up to host its second annual Show and Shine today.

Custom FX Choppers invites owners of all makes and models of motorcycles to come display their rides from noon to 4 p.m. at the Armstrong shop (4135 Highway 97A).

The Show and Shine returns following a successful inaugural event last year.

“We had around 200 bikes, it did really well last year,” said Mike Schrauwen, owner of Custom FX Choppers who organizes the event with his wife.

“If the rain stays away we should do OK this year.”

The event has also expanded to include a local rock band, The Goods.

There will be door prizes, raffle draws and a barbecue with all proceeds from the event benefitting the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation.

“My wife was sick when she was little and she spent a lot of time in Children’s Hospital in Calgary,” said Schrauwen.

Admission to the event is $5, children under 12 are free. Registration is at 11:30 a.m.
