Classic car enthusiasts are encouraged to head to Lara this Sunday as Bisinella’s historic Pirra Homestead welcomes “Motors at the Mansion”.
More than 120 classic cars and bikes are expected to be on display at the event which is organised by the Lions Club of Lara.
Lions Club of Lara president John Wilson said the family-friendly classic car and bike show was now in its sixth year.
Located at Pirra Homestead at 108 Windermere Road, Lara, the event caters for all types of classic cars and bikes.
“If you think it is a classic then we are happy for you to display it,’ Mr Wilson said.
Exhibitors don’t need to book and can simply turn up on the day with their vehicles from 8.30am. The show is open to the public from 9am.
Cost is $10 for an exhibitor plus one passenger, with a $2 gold coin donation for members of the public. Children under 14 are free.
Money raised from the event supports the Lions Club of Lara and is allocated to various community charities including Children’s Cancer Research and an arts and literacy program in Lara schools.
There will be a sausage sizzle and food and drink vans on-site.
Owned by Bisinella Developments, Lara’s “elegant old lady,” Pirra Homestead, has played a significant role in the history of the region for more than 150 years.
The Bisinella family provides support for community events such as Motors at the Mansion by donating the use of historic Pirra Homestead.
Tours of Pirra Homestead will also be available to the public on Sunday.
It is a magnificent spot,” Mr Wilson enthused.
“The show used to be called the Lara Lions Club Classic Car and Bike Show but we have changed the name to Motors at the Mansion. Pirra is a star attraction.”
