French Car Festival
The French Car Festival is on again on 1st October at Buchanan Oval in the Macleay Park complex, Balwyn and is being organised this year by PCCV.
You are encouraged to bring your best French cars, bring your Peugeot nick knacks, your Michelin Man or inflatable lion, perhaps a Tour de France uniform and bike, and wear your best French gear.
Spectators and cars will gather on the oval at about 10:00. We will be open from 08:30 and judging will be complete at 13:00 with the awards being presented at 14:30. Entry for cars will be $10. Yes the entry fee has gone up but so have all the costs! Collectors with a stable of cars will pay only for a maximum of two cars provided all cars are presented together and a collector’s corner will be available.
We expect about 200 cars so there will be plenty to see and discuss. Best of marque awards will be made for Peugeot, Renault, Citroen, Alpine and Simca. Also there will be some further surprise presentations for interesting vehicles not covered in the main awards.
Catering will be available, there is a playground adjacent to the display area with extensive equipment for your children or grand children and there are also barbecues available near the play area.
Access is by the main entry of the Macleay Park complex from Belmore Road. Approach from the city direction will make the entry an easy left turn. (Melway 46 C5)
