‘Wild’ win­ter swap meet

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

There will be plenty of shine and colour to brighten up win­ter at this Sun­day’s Tocumwal Win­ter Swap Meet and Show ‘n’ Shine.

This will be the eighth time the event has been held, with more than 1000 peo­ple through the gates in each pre­vi­ous year.

Pre­sented by Mild 2 Wild Rod and Cus­tom, the event will fea­ture more than 120 dif­fer­ent ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing cars, trucks and mo­tor­cy­cles.

One of the event or­gan­is­ers, Eric Finch, says there will be nine dif­fer­ent cat­e­gory prizes, in­clud­ing five peo­ple’s choice prizes, three for bikes and one for the trucks sec­tion.

To warm peo­ple up, Mr Finch says the Ro­tary Club will be cook­ing ba­con and egg rolls, and the event is fully catered.

‘‘There will also be a few bon­fires for peo­ple to warm up,’’ he said.

‘‘There’s usu­ally not much hap­pen­ing on a cold win­ter’s day, so we en­cour­age ev­ery­one to come down for some en­ter­tain­ment.’’

The event will be held at the Tocumwal Foot­ball Grounds. Gates open at 6am for site hold­ers, and 7am for the gen­eral public.

Sites are $15, public en­try is $5 and car en­try is $5, in­clud­ing a driver.

To book a site or for more in­for­ma­tion, phone Eric on 0427 352 171.
