Nearly 1,000 attendees were on hand for the CAPS Auto Parts & Tire Show in Ottawa recently.
It’s the second time the EY Centre played host to the automotive aftermarket show. In addition to the visitors, a number of exhibitors were also on hand for the event.
Special guest Danielle Colby from U.S. reality show American Pickers paid a visit and the Dumolin Competition team showed off their latest Dodge Pinty’s Series racer.
The show was divided into two segments. One was Next Generation, which teachers and students from local technical schools stopped by and CAPS members promoted industry opportunities and mentorships. The other was with vendors to discuss their products and services directly with CAPS customers.
And prizes were also handed out, including a brand new Chevrolet Spark. Khal Kyoz of Leitrim Auto Service took home the new set of wheels.
“We are committed to providing superior products and services with the highest level of quality to our valued customers,” said CAPS owner Chuck Berthiaume, “we are pleased with the turnout at our community expo, and we look forward to the event’s continued growth and success in the Ottawa community.”
