THE MIA Cruisers have Easter on their mind.
The club will be hosting a show and shine that is promising to have something for everyone on Easter Saturday at Leeton's town ovals carpark.
Cars from a range of eras from clubs across the region are expected to take part, with hot rods also set to feature.
A carnival-like atmosphere will also be part of the fun thanks to a coffee van, hot doughnuts, children's rides and more all available on the day.
The MIA Cruisers had been hoping to host a similar event last year, but were shut down at the last minute prior to Easter due to COVID restrictions.
With that in mind, the club has made sure the 2021 show and shine has something for the biggest car enthusiasts right down to everyone in between and even children.
Prizes will be awarded in various categories, but there will also be some fun sections thrown in for good mix such as "best mullet" or "biggest fanatic".
The best part is, the event is open to the whole community to attend for just a gold coin donation, which will later be given back to a charity of choosing by the club.
"It's a great opportunity for people to come out on Easter Saturday and have a look around," MIA Cruisers president David Warburton said.
"We'll have vintage cars, more modern models, we're hoping for trucks and bikes as well.
"Everyone who comes along to these things and enters their vehicle is always up for a chat and loves answering people's questions too, so it's really a family-friendly event."
IN OTHER NEWS:
The MIA Cruisers are a relatively new organisation, but the group enjoys putting on these events not just for members, but for other car clubs and the community.
It will no doubt also bring many people to town who will spend their money while here and enjoy the hospitality Leeton has on offer.
With hot air balloons set to be flying this Easter, as well as the Leeton Farmers Markets also scheduled for the same day, residents will be spoiled for choice when it comes to getting out and about after spending last Easter in lockdown.
The event will be COVID-safe. Cost for entries into the show and shine is $5 per vehicle, with participants to arrive at 8.30am.
Public entry will open from 9am.
Judging will take place at 10.30am, with a presentation of winners from 11.30am.
"We're hoping to get good numbers on the day and just have people enjoying themselves this Easter," Mr Warburton said.
