Fords, Hold­ens at Bal­moral

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

A sev­enth an­nual Lions Club of Bal­moral District Show ‘n’ Shine with a mar­ket next month will fea­ture a ‘Ford and Holden Su­per­cars’ theme.

Event spokesman David Ap­ple­ton said the theme was based on the last year of Aus­tralian pro­duc­tion-made Ford and Holden cars and he en­cour­aged peo­ple with his­toric ex­am­ples of makes and mod­els to bring them to the event.

“If it’s got wheels and you’re proud of it, bring it along,” he said.

Mr Ap­ple­ton said the event would con­tinue to fea­ture other types of his­toric ve­hi­cles, from mo­tor­cy­cles and early ex­am­ples of au­to­mo­biles to hot- rods and mod­i­fied cars. The Novem­ber 5 event at Bal­moral Recre­ation Re­serve will start at 10am and run un­til 3pm.

The show ‘n’ shine will also in­clude an ex­ten­sive mar­ket and a pro­gres­sive raf­fle with about 20 prizes sup­plied by Hor­sham and Hamil­ton busi­nesses up for grabs.

The event has at­tracted about 300 pa­trons and 100 cars for the past two years, some trav­el­ling from across western Vic­to­ria and be­yond, and or­gan­is­ers are keen to in­crease the num­bers.

“It’s all about rais­ing money for re­dis­tri­bu­tion back into the com­mu­nity while also hav­ing a great fam­ily day out and a lot of fun,” Mr Ap­ple­ton said.
