An all Amer­i­can week­end

South Canterbury Herald - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Ti­maru to go all Amer­i­can as cars go on dis­play.

‘‘We have had en­quiries from through­out New Zealand for the event,’’ Weir said.

‘‘We won’t know un­til the week­end how many will turn up and from where.’’

Last year the event at­tracted 160 ve­hi­cles on dis­play on the Sun­day and about 60 on the cruise on the Satur­day night, she said.

‘‘It’s a good fun event for a good cause.’’

She said the Sun­day dis­play was al­ways a pop­u­lar event with the public, and there will be en­ter­tain­ment and food stalls on the bay as part of the dis­play.

On the Satur­day night there will be a cruise night be­gin­ning at 3pm. Par­tic­i­pants will meet at the north end of the Caro­line Bay Car Park. The cruise will de­part at 3.30pm, fin­ish­ing with a get-to­gether and sausage siz­zle. Later that night a drive-in movie will be held at Lev­els Race­way and costs $25 per ve­hi­cle. The movie night will be­gin at 7.30pm and all ve­hi­cles are wel­come.

‘‘We tri­alled it last year as a first and then de­cided to open it to any ve­hi­cle this year.’’

An all Amer­i­can ve­hi­cle dis­play will take place at the Caro­line Bay Car Park from 10am to 2pm on Sun­day. The dis­play costs $15 per ve­hi­cle en­try and a gold coin do­na­tion for public en­try.
