Coast steps back in time
CENTRAL Coast businesses are getting set for an influx of more than 50,000 locals and visitors when the region takes its annual step back in time to the glory days of the ‘50s and ‘60s, with the three-day Chromefest event at The Entrance on October 25-27.

More American classic cars, an explosion of rock ‘n’ roll and the ultimate in vintage glamour are sure to deliver a weekend of head-turning, twist and shake fun, with the boost to the Coast’s economy estimated to be more than $13M.
Council’s Unit Manager Community Partnerships, Glenn Cannard, said there would be more than 400 show cars on display.
“When you combine classic chrome with rock ‘n’ roll, vintage glamour and the beauty of The Entrance, you have quite a weekend on your hands,” Mr Cannard said.
“Whether you’re a car enthusiast or not, you won’t be able to resist lining the streets to watch the classic cars cruise through The Entrance.
“We invite locals and visitors to partake in a fun weekend that offers something for everyone – a vintage glamour fashion parade, retro market stalls, three outdoor dance floors and new to the event this year, The Old Tin Shed.”
ChromeFest 2019 highlights will include: a lowriders display, retro market stalls, three outdoor stages boasting undercover dancefloors, a Set and Brush Out Workshop (where you can master the perfect ‘50s or ‘60s ‘updo’.
Cafes, bars and restaurants in the Entrance and Long Jetty are gearing up for bumper crowds for the three-day event, which will be co-presented by Council and Californian Cruisin Incorporated.
Road closures will be in place during the event, with free shuttle leaving every two hours from 9am on Saturday and 8am on Sunday from Tuggerah Railway Station on Bryant Drive, Darren Kennedy Oval on Evans Road in Toukley and Yakalla St, Bateau Bay.
