Road Kings event includes free cab ride

Nelson residents who purchase tickets to the annual Road Kings Rooftop Shaker will get a coupon for a free cab ride home.

Nelson residents who purchase tickets to the annual Road Kings Rooftop Shaker on Saturday, Sept. 12, which will feature music from Men in the Making and Sunshine Drive, will find an exciting addition to their ticket: a tear-away stub redeemable for a free cab home.

As part of the anti-drinking Safe Ride Home program, the free taxi rides are courtesy of Kootenay Insurance Services and the Nelson and District Credit Union.

Party-goers’ safety that night will be made possible by a team that includes (left to right) Glacier Cabs’ Terry Maglio, Tom Atkins of the credit union, Donna Wingenbach of Kootenay Insurance and Hume Hotel owner Ryan Martin. Tickets for the show, which will be held on the roof of the city parkade, are $25.
