On Saturday, the festival kicks off bright and early at 8am, with music and classic cars, with prize money for the top ten cars. There'll also be a Pin-up Comp, guaranteed to surprise you with the glamour on display, and a tattoo comp full of interesting body art.

Browse the markets for a bounty of trash, treasure and retro-themed wares, and check out the garage sales. There's also a swap meet run by the local Historical Society.

And, on both days, you can jive to the sounds of live bands.
