Sit back and en­joy the cruisy week­end

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

CAR lovers will have two rea­sons to be happy this week­end.

They will have the op­por­tu­nity to ad­mire an ar­ray of classic mus­cle and hot rod cars along the back­drop of the beau­ti­ful Air­lie Beach foreshore.

The third an­nual Cruisin’ Whit­sun­day event is set to go ahead and en­thu­si­asts from clubs as far as Cairns and Rock­hamp­ton will come to regis­ter their in­ter­est.

An ex­pected 40 ve­hi­cles are likely to be on dis­play over the week­end, which will have a re­laxed and so­cia­ble at­mos­phere.

Whit­sun­day Cruisin’ Car Club pres­i­dent Chris Coyte said there was al­ways some­thing for ev­ery­one at the an­nual event.

“Ev­ery­one likes to come and have a ball and at the end of the week­end peo­ple ask me ‘what date it is back next year’ so they can book it in the cal­en­dar,” he said.

“A lot of the lo­cals are hurt­ing and have cars and houses dam­aged so this is about let­ting their hair down to en­joy cars for the week­end.”

Satur­day af­ter­noon will take at­ten­dees to Air­lie Cove Park to en­joy a re­lax­ing time play­ing Rocker cover races and pool, with en­ter­tain­ment pro­vided by the band Baby Boomers.

Later that night there will be a Hawaiian theme party at Air­lie Cove Car­a­van Park, which will in­clude a bar­be­cue.

Peo­ple are en­cour­aged to bring ugly shirts, grass skirts and co­conuts.

Car nom­i­na­tion will be $20, which will in­clude ac­cess to the bar­be­cue on Satur­day night and ba­con and eggs on Sun­day morn­ing at Air­lie Cove Park.
