If you and your family are collectors or admirers of prestige cars or bikes…
and are looking for a great family day out, mark down the first ever Calliope Motor Enthusiasts Car and Bike Show into your diary.
The show is being held in conjunction and in support of Rotary Calliope Markets on Sunday 26th June from 9am – 12 midday. We caught up with the Calliope Motor Enthusiasts during the week to find out a bit more about the group and why they decided to support this great cause.
The Calliope Motor Enthusiasts are a growing Facebook Group with over 600 members, and their aim is to provide a family friendly place for people in the Calliope/Gladstone area. Their current members reach as far as Biloela to Rockhampton and the surrounds, with members posting on the group about their 2/3/4 wheeled pride and joys (and boats too!). The group’s openness to all forms of transportation sets them apart from any other car group in the region, as does their family friendly atmosphere at all their events. If this sounds like a group you’d love to join, click here to find them on Facebook and one of the page admins will accept your request and welcome you into their car-loving community.
The group were recently approached by the Rotary Club in Calliope to assist with gaining more attendance at the local monthly markets by holding a car and bike show. Since the cause fit with their aim of being family friendly and supporting the local community, they quickly agreed to help out by holding their first ever car and bike show at the markets.
The show is already getting lots of interest from locals, with quite a number of vehicles already signing up. If you’re interested in bringing along your pride and joy, all cars and bikes of any make or model are welcome. This is a great family oriented show (with raffles and trophies to be won!) that welcomes collectors and admirers of all ages! Local businesses have been supporting the event with donations of prizes and Calliope business, Rios Excavations, have kindly sponsored the event.
When: Sunday, 26 June 2016 from 9am to 12noon
Where: Behind the Calliope Anglican Church and next to the Calliope RSL Hall,Dawson Highway, Calliope
Who: Everyone! All cars and bikes welcome, any make or model – if you love it, bring it!
If the show is a success, the Calliope Motor Enthusiasts would love to hold the event a couple of times per year so show your support to get this great event happening on the regular! The markets and car and bike show will be held on Sunday 26th June next to the Calliope RSL Hall, Dawson Highway, Calliope. Make sure to snap some photos of your favourite cars and bikes and tag Gladstone News so we can feature them online.
