Car Parade at 2.30pm: it will be a fun convoy down the main street turning around at the end roundabout by Z service station, back up the main street, right onto Monk Street ending up at Grace O’Malley’s on the Esplanade.

“Please decorate your car, your vehicle, and yourselves – great prizes to be won and it is all part of the fun,” says Reg Smith, co-ordinator of this annual celebration with his wife, Jules.

Prizes and Car Show: Pete Jones, owner of Grace OMalleys will have up to 30 parks coned off for the parade cars to back up near, making a small car show.

“A prize will be awarded to the best dressed, male, female, or couple, so make an effort and you could be rewarded. Then it is time to drop the toy home and come back for dinner,” says Reg. The good time music begins at Gracies at 4.00pm!
