Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LOCAL LIVING -

Mo­tor­ing en­thu­si­asts and their fam­i­lies are in­vited to Car Mega­mart in Pak­en­ham on Sun­day, 15th Oc­to­ber for a FREE event, the 2nd An­nual Car Mega­mart MEGA Car Show and Fam­ily Fun Day.

At­ten­dees can en­joy hun­dreds of clas­sic cars on dis­play at the event, free ac­tiv­i­ties for the fam­ily, food trucks and more.

Last year the event saw over 800 clas­sic cars on show and over 2000 at­ten­dees through the gates with larger num­bers ex­pected this year. The MEGA Car Show and Fam­ily Fun Day will be a treat for the whole fam­ily, with food trucks, live en­ter­tain­ment, market stalls and free kids ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing: bungee tram­po­lines, a rock climb­ing wall, face paint­ing and jump­ing cas­tles.

The event will fea­ture the Mel­bourne Old School Cruis­ers car club, how­ever all clas­sic cars are wel­come to come along on the day to be in­cluded in the show.

En­try for both cars and pa­trons is free, with a gold coin do­na­tion to our charity part­ner optional for at­ten­dees. The MEGA Car Show is sup­port­ing the Young Vet­er­ans As­so­ci­a­tion, an or­gan­i­sa­tion ded­i­cated to sup­port­ing vet­er­ans of all ser­vices.

The event will see pro­ceeds raised from a sausage siz­zle, army demon­stra­tions, and face paint­ing be do­nated to the As­so­ci­a­tion along with gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tions from pa­trons on the day.

Cur­rently com­pet­ing in the Out­back Chal­lenge, pro­ceeds from the event will help the or­gan­i­sa­tion to con­tinue of­fer­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties like these to their mem­bers.

Last year, the event raised $1700 for the Young Vet­er­ans, with hopes to dou­ble the amount this time around.

Di­rec­tor Car Mega­mart, Ray Weinzierl, is ex­cited to be host­ing this event for the sec­ond year in a row in sup­port of the Young Vet­er­ans As­so­ci­a­tion, and is look­ing for­ward to see­ing plenty of car lovers and fam­i­lies on the day.

“Our con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion just off Mel­bourne’s Princes Freeway makes Car Mega­mart the per­fect lo­ca­tion for fam­i­lies in the South East to come down to this Mega event. Last year of was a fan­tas­tic com­mu­nity day out and we en­joy giv­ing back where we can”, he said.

“This event has some­thing for ev­ery­one: cars, free ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids, food trucks, live en­ter­tain­ment and more; plus, our deal­ers will be onsite all day to show­case their fan­tas­tic range of sec­ond-hand cars”, Ray said.
