Deniliquin Collectors Club members promoted the upcoming Deniliquin Spring Rally in the Waring Gardens on Saturday.
There are only a few weeks until the Deniliquin Collectors Club’s Spring Rally, and members were busy promoting the event at the weekend.
A selection of local cars and tractors that will participate in the annual rally on September 20 and 21 were on show at the Lions Community Market in the Waring Gardens on Saturday.
Organisers are expecting this year’s event to be ‘‘bigger and better than ever’’, with rally secretary Daryl Whateley saying plans are going well.
He said there had been a lot of interest in the event’s 10th anniversary, which will again be held at Memorial Park.
The Deniliquin Collectors Club, with the support of Deniliquin Central IGA, will host the event, which will also celebrate 100 years of Dodge in Australia.
To celebrate the Dodge anniversary, the club will have a special section of Dodge vehicles on display.
The event will also attract an array of Ferguson and David Brown tractors.
The David Brown Club, which was formed at a former rally, will host a meeting at the event.
There will also be a large array of collectables in the Collectors Club’s shed and the Deniliquin Show pavilion, which will be fairly full and featuring everything from miniature dolphins to King Dick spoons.
Mr Whateley said the rally had seen massive growth in recent years, particularly in people’s collectables.
He said last year’s display highlighted model tractors, glassware, kids’ dolls, tools, shearing gear and other Australiana.
Guests are expected to travel from Bendigo, Melbourne, South Australia and possibly further afield to attend.
The event also attracts strong attendance from surrounding districts.
Popular attractions at the rally include swap sites and a ‘Tractor Trek’ that travels through town on Saturday morning.
Sunday will feature a tractor pull and the popular Show & Shine, which is open to all show, street or unfinished cars.
Prizes, give-aways, displays, food stalls and much more will be on offer.
Tickets are $5 per person each day and an estimated 2000 people are expected to pass through the gates.
Gates will be open all day Saturday and presentations will be held from about 1pm to 2pm on Sunday.
