The Rotary Clubs of Kiama and Gerringong are aiming to get 350 vintage, veteran and classic cars, bikes and caravans to the Kiama Showground for their 7th Kiama Auto Expo.
“We are expecting this year to break our previously established records, and are hoping for 3,000 people to visit on the day,” says Rotary’s John Clarke.
“Beneficiaries from this year’s event will be the Parkinson’s Support Group – Kiama; Parkinson’s NSW; and other Rotary Projects.”
Exhibiting a vehicle is free, with trophies will be awarded for the following categories – Sponsor’s Choice; Mayor’s Choice; President’s Choice; and Parkinson’s Choice.
Apart from the vehicles, there will be a carnival atmosphere with food stalls, a giant slide, music and demonstrations.
“Peoplecare, the event’s major partner, will be in attendance with their Love Mobile and there will be the excitement of the inflatable basketball game regularly seen at Hawkes Games,” says Rotary’s John Clarke.
The Kiama Show Society is also hosting billy cart races, using carts made for them by the Kiama Men’s Shed.
On a more serious note, there will also be free skin cancer screenings, with local GPs volunteering their time for skin cancer prevention, and Rotary’s Men’s Health Education Rural Van will be there offering simple health checks for men.
Details: Sunday 24 November, Kiama Showground, 9-2pm
(Car exhibits welcome from 7am, to be in place by 9am).
Entry $5 for those 12 years and over.
