This October is a monumental month for Holden aficionados in Australia. On Thursday the 20th of October, the last Holden will roll off the Elizabeth Factory Line as the company says goodbye to Australia.
To thank the community and to celebrate Holden's past, present, and future, Holden will be holding an event on the 15th of October.
This historic day will kick off at 9AM with a 10km Dream Cruise of Australian manufactured Holden cars, led by the first and last cars to be built by Holden - a 1948 48/215 and a 2017 VF Commodore.
The huge parade will make its way through the streets of Elizabeth, beginning at the Elizabeth City Centre. Holdens and their owners will cruise past the Vehicle Operations Plant on Philip HIghway and finally end at the My Money House Oval.
Holden fans can get out their deckchairs and enjoy their morning cup of coffee watching along the parade route. Or, for those who fancy a Sunday sleep in, members of the community can attend the Family Fun Day at the parade finish line.
Even more excitingly, pop sensation Samantha Jade has just been announced to perform at the Family Fun Day community concert.
The Dream Cruise is set to end at 11AM at the My Money House Oval, where the Family Fun Day will begin.
