Show and shine to hit all the right audiences
IT WAS a love for vintage vehicles and a desire to please the people that made Dalby State School teacher Tamara Kavney decide to hold a show and shine as a part of the annual Creekside Markets.
"About four years ago I was talking to some of the dads who had their wives and children here at the Creekside Markets and they said they didn't want to come because there was nothing for them to do,” Ms Kavney said.
"So I decided to have a show and shine, and we started it four years ago.
"The dads now hang around the cars and show their cars off, and they've got something to do while their wives go and look at the markets and their children go and have fun.”
Ms Kavney is the owner of three vintage vehicles, including Bubbles the Kombi van - an attraction loved by everyone.
The organiser hopes this year's show and shine will encourage drivers and car owners to network and celebrate their mutual love of their vehicles.
"I hope that we get a good roll-up and people are just able to enjoy the day and network,” she said.
The Creekside Markets are on Saturday, August 31 from 8am.
