Drumheller's annual car and bike show and shine will go ahead again this year, although under new management.
 
Bryan Telford, who organized Boogie in the Badlands for the last several years, has moved out of the area and Mike Todor from 3rd Avenue Arts is taking over.
 
"So many times we get events that start out in Drumheller and, as long as somebody has enthusiasm, they keep going. Then they lose enthusiasm or move away or something and they quit, so we lose events and we lose continuity," he responded when asked his reasons for taking over.
 
"I just know that I'm going to do it, I'm waiting to meet with Bryan, find out what he did last year and see where I can take it from there," he continued. "I'd like to see more motorcycles; I'm a motorcycle guy."
 
This year's Boogie in the Badlands will be held on Saturday, May 27 on Centre Street in downtown Drumheller, as it has been in recent years.
 
"I'm hoping to do it for like, maybe five years, kind of thing," stated Todor. "In that time, I hope to get the promotions out earlier so people can be more aware."
