Gala Day Show & Shine
Saturday is the big Rock and Hop Gala Day, with the last event attracting more than 1000 vehicles, more than 100 stalls and arouond 25,000 people. This is our huge nostalgia festival where the atmosphere is fantastic, with lots of people dressed in their best '50s and '60s clothes. The music is pumping, the stalls are great, the dance floor is rocking and everyone is having a good time.
The cars, caravans and motorbikes are all on display and look great lined up on the grass. Take your time to have a look at the amazing array of vehicles from vintage, classic and muscle cars right through to modern. This really is a celebration of motor vehicles over the years, with roughly $30million worth of cars on display.
The stalls sell everything from clothing, cushions, food, jewellery, nostalgia items and much more. We have a bar area where you can sit back, have a drink and take in all that is going on up on the stage, and there is plenty. The Best Dressed Competition is very popular and the entrants really take pride in their amazing outfits.
This year we will have The Groove and The Drama Queens playing at different times and both know how to provide just the right atmosphere. We have plenty of competitions to keep you entertained, so get along and get yourself entered to win all sorts of fantastic prizes from our various sponsors. Make sure you get your ticket in our $10,000 lucky ticket raffle too from either the Information tent or one of our roving sellers. It's drawn on the day.
Finally of course we have the Show and Shine Car Competition Winners Parade. This is the highlight for all contestants and public alike. All of the vehicles which have won a prize for their sections are paraded through the crowd and are then lined up for all to view. Don't forget to vote for your participants choice or public choice winners. You can do this at the Information Tent before 1.30pm.
