‘Cars for Kids’ on show in Mackay

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

WHIT­SUN­DAY car en­thu­si­asts will travel to Mackay for the an­nual Cars for Kids mo­tor show this Sun­day at Caneland Cen­tral’s multi-deck car park.

The day will be jam-packed with more than 160 ve­hi­cles, from Ford’s to Holden’s, vin­tage cars and drag cars, ex­pected to be on show.

The mo­tor show will con­tain over fifty tro­phy and prize cat­e­gories cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing on two and four wheels.

The Mackay and District Holden Club sec­re­tary Dar­ryl Barker en­cour­aged car en­thu­si­asts from across the area to at­tend the mo­tor show.

“We have a lot of people that are car en­thu­si­asts in the re­gion and they love to show­case their prides and joys for ev­ery­one to see,” he said.

Funds raised from the event will be go­ing to­wards Mackay PCYC and lo­cal schools.

Mr Barker said it’s an im­por­tant event he hopes the com­mu­nity can get be­hind.

“It’s a great cause and we’re hop­ing that all mo­tor en­thu­si­asts can turn out with their cars and get be­hind our fundrais­ing ef­forts,” he said.

Mr Barker said he can’t imag­ine a bet­ter way for fam­i­lies to spend a Sun­day.

“A shop­ping cen­tre is a great venue for a car show, it's clean, un­der­cover from the el­e­ments and you get the best of both worlds, Dad and the kids can look at the cars and Mum can get some peace and quiet and go shop­ping,” he said.

The event will in­clude ac­tiv­i­ties for the whole fam­ily to en­joy in­clud­ing face paint­ing, trivia games and a sausage siz­zle.

En­tries are still open for Sun­day’s car show.
