The Waterfront

On Sunday the 13th of March. Members contributed significantly to the display at the Italian Waterfront Festa at Homebush Bay. The display created by IMSMC included 28 cars and 1 supercharged Vespa!

We were joined by our very good friends of Combined Italian Automobile Organisation (CIAO!), Ducati Owners Club, Classic Italian motorcycle association of Australia and historic cars from other clubs.

A grand total of 85 vehicles made up the display.

On a very warm, humid day - Thanks Sydney - our club was exposed to many people. Merchandising sales were up, with Maria Losinno and Oriana De Iulio working feverishly to satisfy the crowd with our club merchandise. Thank you ladies!

As the temperature rose a number of members began to share their refreshments from their “esky's”. One of the stalls had "chilled limoncello" for sale; Leo Di Rocco purchased a bottle and shared with all club members! Thanks Leo.

The day progressed with a great deal of entertainment - music, pasta, pizza, cakes and coffee!

Our members remained at the Waterfront until 4:00pm.

Just as we were about to leave, Lino De Iulio walked from one of the restaurants and shared 2 trays of Arrancini and 3 pizzas with the members. Another gracious gesture, Thankyou Lino!
