From stock and mild to wild, there are many great Muscle Cars Marques to honour, in fact so much so we decided it was worthy as this year's feature. We have kids' hot rod rides, bouncy castles, merry-go-rounds and a large variety of food and coffee stalls along with the clubs sausage sizzle with free apples. This year we once again will be running a fashion pageant for the ladies and for the men a Beard Competition. Public gate entry: Adults $10, children 5-13 $3.
