There is a lot of ‘love me fender’ going on right now, and with Elvis at heart they’ll also be rocking at the seventh annual Shannons Yankalilla Cruise on Sunday, November 16.
Presented by the fabulous Rotarians at Yankalilla, this year’s Cruise offers a sneak peek of some of the vehicles on the Saturday from 1-5pm when people can come along to the Yankalilla Memorial Oval and enjoy live music by Raunchy Sugar and jive on the dance floor. A mini-cruise will be along the spectacular Carrickalinga coastline from 2-2.30pm, while it’s rock ’n roll time with entertainment by Peter Tilbrook Party Cats Trio at a dinner and/or dance at Wirrina Resort the Saturday night.

The biggest event, of course, is the Cruise at Yankalilla Memorial Park Oval from 10am with more live music plus and other great entertainment. No pre-event car registration is required – it’s $15 per vehicle or $5 walk-in with kids under-14 free.
The event is for classic, custom, hot rods and chrome bumper pre-1979 vehicles, and last year’s show was sensational.
The actual cruise is from Castle Plaza, Edwardstown via South Road, Southern Expressway, Aldinga and Myponga en route to the oval. Cars arrive about 11.15am. Full details: www.yankalillacruise.com
The Yankalilla Cruise has developed into one of the most polular car events on the Fleurieu Peninsula, and certainly one of the best organised.
Well done to Billy Peel, who got this event really going and the many other hard-working volunteers.
