Car enthusiasts gather every Saturday night at the A&W parking lot as part of Sooke Coffee and Cars. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. And once you’ve taken a look at the vehicles, grab a burger and coffee.

Lace-up your running shoes and go for a jog.
The Sooke Region is blessed with kilometres of trails to explore and offers some of the best running trails in B.C.
Perhaps the most popular trail is the Galloping Goose Regional trail, which spans a 60-kilometre distance from Sooke to downtown Victoria, offering paved sections towards Victoria.
If you want to stay closer to home, you can try Whiffin Spit, Sea to Sea Regional Park, or the Coast Trail in East Sooke Regional Park.
The DeMamiel Creek Par 3 Golf Course is a fairway where conditions are something between pretty darn good, and almost perfect.
And if you’re looking for something to do for a couple of hours that’s relaxing, fun and recreational, then DeMamiel Creek is the place to go.
You can register your tee time by calling SEAPARC at 250-642-8000 or online at www.seaparc.ca.
