The 2nd Annual Pin-Up Picnic in the Park is coming to Logan River Parklands on Sunday the 13th of November. This event has been put together thanks to a lovely lady known as Miss Angel Hellcat (Amy Armstrong) and the members of Pin-Up Picnic in the Park on Facebook. It brings together families and individuals for a relaxed Sunday picnic of making friends, expressing yourself and what you love. These ladies happen to love everything 50's, the rockabilly and pin up scenes; and they look good!

We all have our own interests and likes that sometimes causes us to be 'labelled' an outcast, but the message of the day is to let go of what is "normal" and embrace exactly who you are. Armstrong who hosts the event, runs it at Logan River Parklands on Sunday the 13th and it starts at 11am running until participants are partied out. This year the group would like to extend their invitation to all pin-ups (not just members), their families and friends to join on into the picnic by the water.

So it's time to dust off that outfit, pop on your sunscreen and bake/cook something to share around and join in on the Pin-Up Picnic in the Park. The location itself offers public toilets, shelter, BBQ's and a play park for the small pin-ups or greasers!

It is free to attend the event and all are welcome, but this year Amy will also be holding a sausage sizzle and raffle with all proceeds going to Alzheimer's Australia. There are plenty of prizes to be won as well as live music to keep the day exciting and entertaining. One of the group's many sponsors is local photographers who come in and donate their time for the day so you can have your very own photo shoot. With large faux cupcakes and other items to parade around with, you're likely going to have a very memorable day whilst surrounded by the wonderful and welcoming people of the group!

If you would like any more information on this event, or would even like to sponsor it, please call Amy on 0413 235 150.
