The Southern Cross Car and Bike Show will welcome punters from across the State this weekend, with children’s entertainment and a swap meet on offer.
The event will start on Saturday evening with a two-course dinner, but the main action will take place on Sunday when a gold coin will give attendees access to a car simulator, market stalls, and the display of cars and motorbikes.
Southern Cross Car and Bike Show treasurer Kerry Fairless said the annual event was started in 2003, with between 800 and 1000 people expected to walk through the gates this year.
“We are getting more and more people coming out of Kalgoorlie with their cars. But we’ve had people come from Perth. . . Busselton and Esperance,” she said.
Ms Fairless noted there would be free camping available as well as wood-fired pizzas, burgers, nachos and sausages on offer, with the Creamy Cow ice-cream van in attendance.
She said car and motorbike owners would be judged by spectators, with the people’s Choice trophies handed to the lucky winners, before the curtain would close on the event at 3pm.
For the younger ones, a remote control truck display, a merry-go-round, face painting, the McDonald traveling farm and inflatable bumper cars are set to entertain them.
“We’re only a very small club, we’ve got 21 people in our club,” Ms. Fairless said.
