It is almost 6 years since I spent a winter on the Goldcoast, so that means I have missed the “Winter Sun Festival” one of the most colourful festivals on the Goldcoast, held the first weekend in June every year . It is now called “Cooly Rocks On Festival“
It is a real nostalgia trip back to the 50’s and 60’s. The rock n roll era, days of the huge, extravagant American cars, Elvis Presley was King and the skirts and hair styles were big and bouffant.
It is all here, the music, rock n rolling in the street and the cars, hundreds of them. A rev heads paradise.
Let’s go cruising…
Great Balls of Fire
Here’s Looking at Yer…
Lots of colourful characters too
Did you spot these shy kids???
Way to go!!!!!
Tear drops are falling on your head…
Now who is that with TWO Elvises or this that Elvii???
Remember these big gas guzzlers?
No festival is complete without a clown and balloons.
To finish and put you in the mood here is a short video I took at the 2009 festival. Watch that cool old guy, he’s really rockin it…
Ailsa has asked us to cheer her winter days up with colour, I hope this makes you feel good.
