The Rotary Club of Wandin is holding a special Christmas Wandin Custom Car and Bike Show on Wednesday 18 December from 5-8:30pm.
The Wandin Custom Car and Bike Show has established a reputation not only as an outstanding display of vehicles, but as a popular mid-week get-together for friends and families.
Owners and enthusiasts mingle with those who have a more casual appreciation of the eclectic collection of horsepower, chrome and glossy paint jobs.
Pat Cullen from Wandin Rotary Club ssid the final show for the year would feature a special visit from Santa.
“It’s a great family show, with a great variety of cars. There’s also jumping castle and every sort of takeaway food available, and a bar for the parents,“ he said.“The variety of cars is fantastic. We get around 700 cars coming in and there are some hot rods and vintage American and English cars.”
“The spotlight will be on Santa though who is coming on a firetruck at 7pm and he’ll be passing out some lollies for the kids.”
The show is held at the Wandin East Recreation Reserve on Old Baker Road, Wandin East.
Admission is $5 for show cars (pre 1985) and Bikes, and $2 for visitors. Proceeds go to the Royal Children’s Hospital and Community Projects.
December’s show will also feature live music by band, No Parking.
Mr Cullens said it was a great community and family event for all.
