Special school's Hogs, Rods and Rock fundraiser on August 10

ORGANISERS are geared up for the "all day of entertainment" Hogs, Rods and Rock on August 10.

Headline act Shotgun Duo and local musicians including Anita Ree, Ian Murray, Dale O'Connell and Dr Jack will rock the stage at the Maryborough Special School fundraiser next Saturday.

School principal Sue Omar said it would be a great family event.

"This event has been well supported in the past, and we are looking forward to another great community response on the day," she said.

"All the money raised will go to our students."

The sixth annual All Style Motorcycle and Car Show has received a great response from entrants and supporters, says organiser Dave Fraser.

There will be lots more bikes and cars than last year," he said.

"There are a hundred bikes from Bundaberg alone. We have received a lot of response through all our media including the Maryborough Herald."

There will be children's rides, performances and displays, face painting, food and crafts stalls and live entertainment. The event will also include a wheelbarrow raffle and meat trays.
