Show cars, race cars and music return to Lowood
CARS and music will be the major attractions amidst a vast array of entertainment when the Prenzlau Pride Car and Music Show takes place at the Lowood Showgrounds this Sunday, July 25.
Organised by the Lowood Lions Club, this popular community event is back again after being cancelled last year due to Covid-19.
Now in its eighth year, the annual car meet is all in the name of getting the community together to showcase cars of all eras.
The Prenzlau Rural Fire Brigade will demonstrate rescue techniques, and Prenzlau State School will serve food and drinks.
Several local business sponsors, community groups and individuals will have trade and market stalls.
Trophy presentations and draws for the lucky car entrant and lucky numbers raffle will take place at 1.30pm, with awards for vintage/veteran, classic, modern, sports, muscle car, commercial and many more classes.
There will be a static race car display celebrating the 61st anniversary of the Australian Grand Prix held at Lowood. Plenty of race car photos and video footage from 1960 will be available to view.
Special guest will be Lowood resident Bill Lubke, who was a competitor on the Lowood circuit.
Local band PlayNup will perform throughout the day with a retro music show featuring songs by Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Connie Francis, Patsy Kline and Slim Dusty. There will also be a line dancing set at 11.15am.
Other attractions throughout the day will include market stalls, hot food, cold drinks, tea, coffee, cake, raffles and free kids’ entertainment such as face painting and a jumping castle.
Proceedings begin at 9am and finish at about 2pm, with car show entry from 7am via Lindemans Road. The cost for spectators is a gold coin, and the show car entrant fee is $10.
The Lowood Lions wish to thank all sponsors of this event, and look forward to families enjoying a wonderful day out on Sunday.
