Auto show more than cars
LOCALS have every reason to get revved up about Casino's 5th Auto Spectacular.
Event organiser Dee Trustum said this year is expected to be bigger and better than ever with all makes and models of cars, utes, trucks and machinery on display at the rugby union grounds.
"We're expecting about 2000 cars - it's amazing what locals have hiding in their garage.
Importantly, the raffle beneficiary of the day is the Northern Rivers Chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA).
This organisation exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. It is part of a worldwide body of Bikers who work to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. It works in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children.
"It's a very worthy cause. BACA do great work for some of the most vulnerable in our community," explained Dee.
The day will include a swap meet, trade displays, markets, raffle, laser skirmish, jumping castle and much more.
