The June Jitter Bug is one of the largest VW shows in Canada. This event will be held at Firemen's Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario on June 26th and 27th 2004. The Jitter Bug has continued to be the VW Car Show in Ontario that keeps the enthusiasts coming back year after year. It's "Claim to Fame" has always been it's "Free Admission" to spectators and it's "Fun" atmosphere for the whole day. With tons of games happening for both adults and children, getting bored at this show never happens, making the Jitter Bug, "Not just another car show".

On the Saturday night before the main event, they have a Cruise Night where everybody gathers to chat about VWs and enjoy some fun. This year the cruise night location will be at the Canadian Tire Store on Mcleod Road in Niagara Falls, Ontario. This location will give them ample parking with many fast food choices within close walking distances. The cruise night will give you a chance to catch up on the gossip with old and new friends, and a chance to see Niagara Falls. During the evening there is a giant cruise past the world famous Niagara Falls (be prepared because you might get wet from the mist), and later you will return to the Canadian Tire Store where there will be an engine tear down contest where you could win some cash.

I'll be there to cover the event for VW Trends and I hope to see you there too!

We arrived at the June Jitter VW show at about 9:30am in a four Beetle, one Bus convoy. The lineup moved along quickly and we got set up in the middle of a huge row of Beetles.

 

It was a hot one and shade was at a premium. Luckily we brought a folding picnic table and a big blue and white umbrella. The JJB switched to participant judging this year and everyone that entered picked his or her favorite VW.

 

Activates at the show included the clutch eater teeter-totter, where you try and balance your V-dub on a huge teeter-totter, engine rebuild and Bug push. All in all it was a great day and a good time was had by all!
