Classics Museum in Hamilton is now such a big part of the Waikato community its hard to believe its only been a year since it opened. On the 1st of December Classics celebrated in true retro style with a Family Fun Carnival day, entertainment for the whole family.
Where there's a birthday party there must be cake! And Karin from Sweet Little Treat is the place for amazing cakes. The replica of the owner Tom's favorite car, a little red 1957 Corvette was incredibly realistic and full of small and perfectly executed details. Betty Boop stood above three layers of delicious chocolate mud cake and leaned on a replica of the Jukebox Diner's vintage jukebox.
A 1937 Bedford bus was restored and unveiled especially for the occasion. The bus was a functioning school bus for Hamilton students in the 1940's.
These guys had the best set up. Chuck a Coromandel beach in the background. Perfect.
We sold almost 100 Pin Up Calendars on the day. A big thank you to all of my excellent sales women for their persistence!
The boys in yellow were on parking, electrical and stage setup. Very important jobs.
Face painting, a bouncy castle, balloon twisting, food and vintage collectibles stalls and of course lots of classic car displays dotted the car park, surrounding a stage where radio presenter Ronny Phillips introduced the entertainment.
The many visitors were delighted by with cheer leading, rock n roll dancing and a vintage fashion show hosted by Michelle Parish.
Hazel Hayes, a cafe on Victoria street brought their food truck along and served delicious coffees, wraps and curly fries.
I want this boat.
Thanks to everyone who came down to celebrate a very successful year of business for Classics Museum!
