A portion of Lower Main Road, Observatory will be closed on Sunday, March 23, from 9 to 4pm to all vehicles other than those dating from the late 1970s and earlier. Lower Main Road and a portion of Station Road will be lined with parked vintage and classic motorbikes and cars for the Vintage Obs Day. Local comedian Kurt Schoonraad, who owns a number of American classics in mint condition and lives in Obs, is expected to be part of the event, along with other vintage petrol heads.
Members of the public are encouraged to dress up in whichever period appeals to them, up until the late 1970s. Prizes will be given to the best dressed at the event.
All the venues that will be opened to the public will participate by playing music, whether live or over sound system, set in a chosen period and their staff will wear clothing depicting that same chosen decade. The venues will have breakfast and lunch specials for those people who will be participating in the event by bringing their cars and bikes to take Obs back visually to its glory days.
Attendees can also expect a Vintage Fair and Autojumble for the green opposite Spar.
