2013 Kiwanis Geelong All Ford Day
The 2013 Kiwanis All Ford Day returns to the Deakin University Sports Ground in Waurn Ponds on Sunday the 17th of February in what promises to be one of the biggest and best celebrations of all things Ford in recent years.
This year over 1200 different models of Ford vehicles are expected spanning all eras of the giant automotive company’s history in Australia and worldwide. Over thirty Ford car clubs are expected to attend bringing some of the finest examples of Ford vehicles the All Ford Day has ever seen.
As well as vehicles the day sees dozens of trade stalls featuring an array of motoring products and services. There are many stalls selling models and other Ford souvenirs, auto parts suppliers, repair and vehicle restoration. The site will also feature several food vendors offering a range of international cuisine, including all the favourites like burgers, hot dogs and roast rolls.
Some of the stars of Ford motorsport, including drivers from the V8 Supercars series will be on hand to meet and greet the crowd and many will offer autograph sessions. Entertainment will include Geelong’s favourite magician, Dazzling Dan the Magic Man and the Jance the party Girl amongst other great acts.
One of the highlights of the All Ford Day in recent years has been Shannon’s Memorabilia Auction, this year the items are sensational, and many items are expected to be very sought after.
The show is open to the public at 9:00 AM and goes through until 3:00 PM with gates opening for show vehicles from 7:00 AM. It is strongly advisable to pre-book show vehicles.
