Rockfest readies for Saturday family fun day


SATURDAY is Family Day where there’s something on offer for everyone, young and old at the Rosebud Foreshore Rockfest.

Cars, bands, shows, competitions, food trucks, stalls and more is on offer throughout the day and night at the festival, held from 14-17 November.

Thousands of visitors are expected to join in the great variety of events and activities, all thoughtfully created to appeal to all visitors, car enthusiasts and Rock ‘n Rollers alike.

From 9.30am to 3pm Rosebud’s main strip rocks on with free Main Street family entertainment including internationally acclaimed Elvis Tribute Performer Mike Cole who will be All Shook Up when he struts his stuff performing all things Elvis.

From 11am the kiddies can learn Rock ‘ Roll moves and grooves at the Peninsula School of Dance Classes and can check out Carnival rides and Back to the 60’s vintage games including quoits, skittles, Giant Dominoes, Giant Jenga, sack races and Corn Holes.

And take a pic in the  Barbie Car and stand, visit the Lemonade stand, Animal Farm and for Mum and Dad there’s a  a Wine and Beer Garden.

Organisers have arranged for part of Point Nepean Road to be closed for what is bound to be one of the festival’s most popular attractions, the Saturday Night Super Cruise.

From 7pm to 9.30pm hundreds of vintage, classic and rare cars, Hot Rods and motorbikes will rev up and cruise their much-loved treasures along the closed off stretch for several kilometres from Jetty Road to Boneo Road.

Rockfest Poster Girl Sandi Horne says the cruise is the number one Rockfest highlight.

“It’s right up there with the Cooly Rocks On! festival on the Gold Coast,” said Sandi.

“ I reckon the Rosebud Saturday Night Cruise might go one better with the hundreds of cars already registered. And this year we also have three fabulous cars from the TV series Dukes of Hazzard that will lead the parade.”

And Saturday Night Fever rocks on at the Big Top Marquee dance groups from all over are geared to dance the night away with some great bands including Honky Tonk Rockers, Moonlighters, Skooterz, and the Village Green Rockfest Beach Party with The Detonators, Fandango, The Nomads and Itchy Fingers.

And of course there’s a number of Food Trucks, stalls and licensed outlets open day and night.
