RC Cars at Shearwater Spring Hobby Show – April 8th and 9th 2017

Halifax RC Park will be joined by the Halifax RC Drifters and some trail truck guys at our annual stand at this years Shearwater Aviation Museum Hobby Show. You’ll be able to see a wide variety of RC vehicles, and we’ll again have some mini-trucks for you to try. On the Sunday morning (10am-12noon) there are plans afoot for a larger indoor RC demonstration  where we’ll have a track setup on a carpeted area (postponed until 2018 – we’ve been promised!). Come and say hi and look over the wide variety of vehicle types making up this fun and lifelong hobby.

The show is located at the SeaKing Club within Shearwater Base. You’ll need ID to get through the main gates on Bonaventure Street (the same street as Shearwater Aviation Museum). Opening hours are 10-4pm Saturday and Sunday. It’s $5 per person or $12 for a family of 4. Tickets also give you access to the Aviation Museum which is a great walk around. Details from the Aviation Museum here. Exact Google maps location of the SeaKing club is here.

Don’t forget we’re also at the Halifax Public Library tomorrow (9:30am-2pm March 25th 2017) with a display of all sorts of RC cars.

CAMix Auto Show review

The Halifax RC Drifters (HRCD) shared their RC demonstration area with a few of us from the Halifax RC Park society. We all had a great time talking to you about the RC hobby and we hope you’ve found your way here to our website which has some great information for beginners in our menus above. Below are a few photos from the show and the HRCD crew have more photos on their Facebook group.

The guys at Halifax RC Drifters are again putting on a dynamic display of drifting at the full-size CAMix auto show in Dartmouth at the weekend (Sunday 21st August 2016 from 11-4pm). A few of us from Halifax RC Park will also be there at A&W Woodside in Dartmouth with an assortment of RC vehicles on display and to answer any questions you might have about the hobby. The CAMix show is free to attend but money is being raised for the Christmas Daddies charity.

We had fun at the library

Just a quick note of thanks to those of you that foregoed the amazing weather yesterday to stop by the Keshen Goodman Public Library to say hi to us. The guys from the Tamiya Crew had fun and we hope those of you that did visit managed to take a good and detailed look at all sorts of RC cars we had on display, or managed to see the drift cars running outside. We know we’ve got some of you thinking about a new RC car! Those of you that didn’t make it out we hope at least had some RC fun outside, and we ourselves were itching to hit the trails and tracks afterwards.

Check out some photos of our display below:
