Collector cars made a roaring return to Oak Bay Avenue throughout the afternoon of Sept. 12.

The 21st annual Oak Bay Car Collector Festival spanned the five blocks between Mitchell Street and Hampshire Road. The stretch contained at least 100 vehicles, ranging in age from one century to one season.

The 21st festival had been planned for 2020, but was cancelled due to COVID-19 public health restrictions.

“People are asking for their annual events back, and we’re pleased that the Oak Bay municipality continues to support this showcase of classic and special interest vehicles,” organizer and event founder Ken Agate previously told Black Press Media.

He characterized the event as one of the most popular vehicle displays on the Vancouver Island event calendar.
