Dancing to the tunes of vintage automobiles
Do you like to dress up?

Do you like fancy-looking vehicles?

Do you like to swing-dance?

Then, listen up! It's that time of the year, where Adelaide gets paraded by some seriously sexy looking motor vehicles, including cars, trucks, Buicks (yes!), and motorcycles that have come out of their shell from the pre-60s era. The vehicles at this event will have a manufacture date prior to 31 December 1959.

Bay To Birdwood Run will be held on September 25, 2016

The Bay To Birdwood event is one that has been part of tradition, being held on an annual basis since 1980. It is a great family-friendly event, where people come together as a community and celebrate the many vintage, classy vehicles that have survived over 4 decades for the current generation to enjoy and appreciate.

Some of the finest motoring vehicles will make their way from the Bay to Birdwood, where people will add to the festivities that celebrate all things vintage and classic in the automobile industry. The Bay to Birdwood Run Committee Inc organises this event and volunteers are a big part of this event, by providing services of first aid, fire safety and security to the members of this event.

In anticipation of this fabulous event that takes place on Sunday (September 25), Rundle Street was given a colourful makeover, where some of the vehicles for this event were displayed on a sunny day in the city, extending up to the East End.

There will be various sources of entertainment, including swing dancing, a chance to sample various local produce and enjoy some wine as you watch the parade of vehicles along their way to the National Motor Museum. All spectators are encouraged to dress up in pre-60s fashion, dance to some sweet tunes from the Golden Era, and even get to sit inside the vehicles to get a feel of its beautiful interior.

The well-known Napier

Seeing all these cars, trucks, motorcycles, and Buicks made the wanderlust in me alive again. Most of these cars have that perfect chilled, road-trip kind of vibe and you can feel like you've entered the Tardis and headed back to a time when things were simpler and more carefree. The atmosphere is very inviting and this is a great cause to support, given its historical significance within the South Australian heritage. With summer just around the corner, why not take the full advantage of a spring-summery weekend and head on down to witness this fantastic event!
