The qld corvette club has entered this
year’s “Cooly Rocks On” Grand Street Parade as we used
to do when it was wintersun. We have been allocated 10 –
12 cars to take part in the parade which will take about
1¼ hours to complete. At the finish, cars can be
dismantled (not literally) and left within the festival
precinct while you enjoy the rest of the day.
To be a part of the parade you must
notify john webro asap on 0439 683 117 or 07 5563 8575.
“Cooly Rocks On” is a 10 day rock &
roll festival, where all of Coolangatta goes back to the
50’s & 60’s, with free Rock & Roll bands everywhere and
2000 plus Hot Rods, Cruiser’s, Muscle Cars, and Stalls
etc, line the closed off main streets. Being in the
parade lets you leave your car within the precinct, as
parking will be hard to find. The crowd will be “BIG”.
Spend the rest of the day enjoying the “Cooly Rocks On”

known person, eg we are Darth Vadar, Phil is Mr
Burns & Smither’s; Miller’s Egyptian; Chris is
Elvis; Big “O”; Thelma & Louise; Mrs Brown & sons,
etc. use heavy make up to emphasize your look. It’s
good fun, be in it!
