There will be gleaming chrome, roaring engines and plenty of American flags in Stratford on Friday as the cars of AmeriCARna make their way into the town.

The Stratford Business Association, along with the Stratford District Council, is hosting AmeriCARna on Friday morning.

The cars will arrive in Stratford at 10.15am, leaving at 12.15pm.

The cars will park along Broadway between Fenton and Seyton Streets, with any overflow parking on Miranda between Fenton and Seyton Streets.


"It is exciting to host AmeriCARna here in Stratford again. It is such an awesome event that always draws a large crowd," says Samara Preston, secretary of the Stratford Business Association.

"This is my second time for AmeriCARna in this role and I am looking forward to building on last year's successful event".

Samara says Prospero Place will be a hub of activity with live entertainment from Off the Cuff from 10am in Prospero Place.

In addition to the live music there will be plenty to eat and drink, as well as market stalls, stilt walkers, balloon artists, a free bouncy castle, free mini cars and free face-painting.
