LOCAL motoring enthusiasts and families were treated to a great day out last weekend as the Rotary Cub of Shepparton’s inaugural Motor Show and Market Day drew in over 4,000 people, who were welcomed through the Shepparton Showground gates.
Going beyond organiser’s wildest expectations the successful day featured over 250 vintage, veteran, classic and custom cars, motorbikes and trucks and offered a range of trade displays, more than 130 market stalls and children’s entertainment, with all proceeds raised on the day going towards Rotary programs to benefit the community.
Motor Show Chairman, Geoff Long said, “It was an excellent day with lovely weather, great crowds and a good turnout of cars on display.
“An unusual feature at this year’s event was a second world war army tank and we had the Life Education Van there as well, with Harold the Giraffe making several appearances throughout the day.
“We also had another great event with the market stalls, which provided a large variety of items.
“We would all like to thank the community for the great support they provide for the motor show event and planning is well underway for next year’s event,” Geoff said.
