Allora will celebrate its 25th annual Heritage Weekend at the showgrounds this Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 January as part of the town’s Australia Day celebrations.
Warwick Veteran and Vintage Vehicle Club president Graeme McMillan said this year’s event will include everyone’s favourite displays and attractions – from vintage and veteran cars and trucks to Massey tractors, English bikes and Southern Cross engines.
“You name it, it’s there,” he said.
Thousands of attendees are expected to descend on Allora tomorrow evening for a 6.00am start Saturday morning.
Graeme said organisers have gone to great lengths to ensure the event is Covid-safe. Guests will be required to sign in upon entrance, either electronically or manually, and must use the EFTPOS facilities available at the gates.
“We need to get away from handling money as much as possible,” said Graeme.
Current guidelines also mean the annual dinner – to be held this Saturday – will have to be moved from the Allora Showgrounds to the Allora Sports Club.
“There are about 130 tickets available for dinner that guests can book on the day,” said Graeme.
“Admission will be $30 per person for the dinner or just $10 per adult for the day.”
Graeme said there is no limit on numbers for daytime events, and guests will be able to purchase tickets at the gate.
