On Sunday the 29th of October, 50 IMSMC cars ( and 1 Vespa) participated in the annual Auto Festa at Pioneer park, as part of the Norton Street Festa, Leichhardt.
At 9:00am, Parramatta Rd was transformed in to the Via Appuania, with Italian motor vehicles of all shapes and sizes, historic & modern classics, each greeted and respected by the Sunday morning traffic in Sydney.
Upon arrival, our machines looked great, as our members parked with great efficiency and respect of the public alike.
.Auto Festa is a day of all things Italian (and some). Food, wine, fashion, engineering, song and dance It was estimated that the event was attended by over 150,000 MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC.
Certainly a substantial claim to being the biggest street Festa in all of Australia. We congratulate the organisers and thank Patrick O'Reilly of Impact exhibitors!
At lunchtime, All IMSMC members and guests were treated with a porchetta roll, courtesy of the event manager!
A huge THANKYOU TO CARMINE LOSINNO, ANDRES MENDES LOPES & ROSITA CARA, for graciously giving up their time carving up and serving the porchetta rolls for all to enjoy!
