The 2017 Pinup Entrants for Miss Rods and Rockabilly 2017.
The pageant organised and hosted by Miss Bettie Butcher, will see 10 participants from across Queensland competing for the title of Miss Rods and Rockabilly 2017.

Each contestant will compete in 3 separate rounds showcasing their pinup rockabilly styles in daywear, swimwear and evening wear. Previous festivals have shown the diversity in modern pinup and rockabilly to classic vintage ensembles. The lucky pinups taking to the stage will be Foxy Rocket, Miss Kitten Darling, Miss Bettie Beehive, Miss Hatsie-May, Trixie La Rouge, Miss Angela Misfit, Miss Candy Crimson, Miss Citrine Velvitine, Miss Imy La Fleur and Miss Harlow.

The stunning pinups participating this year will be also selling raffle tickets on the day with donations going to Cancer Council as part of Pinups for Pink Ribbon.

If you are looking to enter your hot rod, entries are open to all pre 75 with chrome bumpers, no pre-registration with a first in, best dressed. The gates open from 11am to cars and will close at 11.45am sharp or when the carpark is full. Trophies and prizes awarded for Artist of the Day and Car of the day will be at 4:00pm on the main stage.

The 'Rock on 18plus after Party' will be held from 6pm in the upstairs area of The Hamilton Hotel. The live band line-up includes The Koffin Rockers, Jon Flynn and His Knights of Sin and Hank's Jalopy Demons.

Set to be a day that the whole family can enjoy, Rods and Rockabilly Festival is brought to you by The Hamilton Hotel and Sailor Jerry and is definitely an event to mark on your calendars.

We're having the Time Warp Festival in Palmwoods this coming Saturday, Pinup - I'm looking forward to it - sounds very similar to The Rods and Rockabilly one!
