THE sound of thun­der­ing mo­tor­bikes and cars rum­ble through the streets of Bux­ton last Sun­day morn­ing as keen mo­torists proudly dis­played their pride and joys for the pub­lic to ad­mire.

Bux­ton Friend­ship As­so­ci­a­tion and com­mu­nity groups set the stage for a spec­tac­u­lar car and bike show for res­i­dents to en­joy.

The beach front event at­tracted en­thu­si­ast from across the re­gion, stretch­ing at far south as the Gold Coast.

Event or­gan­iser Jim Baron said it was a great day and he was pleased with the turn out.

“We had over 70 cars on dis­play and count­less mo­tor bikes, over 100 at least,” he said.

“We have a great com­mu­nity here at Bux­ton and en­cour­age lo­cals to or­gan­ise events.”

Af­ter the car show Mr Baron was head­ing to Her­vey Bay for a well de­served rest af­ter plan­ning and or­gan­is­ing the grand event.

Lo­cal com­mu­nity groups step out in sup­port of the event with the Woodgate First Re­spon­ders, the Ru­ral fire ser­vice and the Childers SES set­ting up dis­plays and as­sist­ing in park­ing.

Mak­ing an ap­pear­ance in Bux­ton and award­ing tro­phies to the win­ner was Mayor Jack Dempsey who said he en­joyed time out of the of­fice and meet­ing the lo­cals.

“Bux­ton is a fantastic com­mu­nity and events like this en­cour­age lo­cals to take part,” Cr Dempsey said.

He said or­gan­is­ers should be proud of their ef­forts.

The Bux­ton Friend­ship As­so­ci­a­tion is a com­mu­nity-based group sup­port­ing and en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to visit their town.
