Now in its ninth year, The Wandin Custom Car and Bike Show has established a reputation not only as an outstanding display of vehicles, but as a popular mid-week get-together for friends and families.
The Rotary Club of Wandin, supported by numerous local motoring businesses, the Wandin Bendigo Community Bank and other community organisations, runs the monthly show from October through to March.
All roads lead to the Wandin East Recreation Reserve on the third Wednesday of each month as hundreds of pre-1985 cars and multi-generational bikes file through the gates and make their way onto the showground.
Owners and enthusiasts mingle with those who have a more casual appreciation of the eclectic collection of horsepower, chrome and glossy paint jobs.
Starting at 6pm and running through to 9pm, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly with the local CFA providing a barbeque and wood-fired pizza and refreshments also on offer.
The entry fee for cars and bikes if $5 with gold coin entry for patrons.
The event supports the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal and local community organisations.
The 2018 show dates are January 18, February 15 and March 15.
Enquiries to Auto One in Woori Yallock on 5964 7366, or visit Wandin Rotary Club facebook page.
