Hi Folks,
The arrangements are going well for the Parade on Saturday and the Show on Sunday 27th September. 
We think that having state borders closed all through September is a positive thing for the event, and we’re very confident of getting an approved Covid plan. 
The site has been planned in detail, so every lot on the car park has been allocated to a particular Kombi or Vendor or Supporter and we have ensured that safe distancing will enable everyone to enjoy the show. 
But of course it will be different this year, so we will be limiting the numbers on the car park according to our Covid plan. 
Like everywhere else we’ll be asking everyone to register and taking your details. We’ll have event and traffic marshalls to help you and sanitising stations etc. will be in place.
So this is just to update you and let you know about the access arrangements. 
Saturday Parade 26th September late afternoon / early evening
50 - 100 kombis will meet at the car park and will travel along the beachfront to create interest in Sundays big event.
They will be escorted by some top vehicles from Cricks Volkswagen, and we will have SeaFM on board providing a roving commentary on th eKombi parade along the beachfront. 
We’re asking all Kombi’s…even if you can’t make the show on Sunday to come along for an amazing photo shoot. Channel 7 TV are expected to be there. 
If Kombis could asssemble in the car park from about 4 ish…and we’ll head off around 5 -ish. More details coming so stay tuned.
Sunday 27th September (early to late afternoon) 
We’ll be setting up early so everyone will not only have a spot to park given to them before they arrive, but we’re asking everyone to be in plave well before 8am to allow for the expected early rubber neckers. 
The Mooloolaba beach car park will be full of Kombis, vintage surfboards, Musicians, Sunshine Coast artists and street vendors to celebrate the Sunshine Coast lifestyle while giving back to the community. 
Our beneficiaries of this fundraising event are Salty Souls  The Board Meeting organisation  and Care Outreach  So bring some spare cash for raffles and some amazing food. 
SeaFM will be broadcasting the event from the foreshore mid morning. 
The North Shore Board Riders will have their fantastic vintage surfboards on display, including some never seen before. 
The Kombis will be competing for the best renovation, and the people’s choice, and we’ll have a celebrity judge from Cricks Volkswagen to make the call. 
There will also be two display Kombi’s on show from a Sunshine Coast Collector that will create a lot of interest. 
Owen Cavanagh, world famous surf artists and his colleagues will be showing off their amazing surf Art, and there will be a display at the old amenities block where Owen will be creating surf art while you watch…we’re expecting that to be one of the highlights of the show. 
Sunshine Coast bands, including Tay Oskee and other top line musicians will be playing, as will community bands such as Siena School Big Band.
Green Frog adventures will be running the kids play areas with some great kids activities.
Access to Surf Show and Shine 
 It is best to approach the event site from Alexandra Headland or Buderim Road. Approaching Mooloolaba from the south will be tricky.
 Mooloolaba traffic is in chaos as Brisbane Road has been dug up and detours are in place.
If you are approaching from Buderim Road or Alex Headland, simply take the traffic lane nearest the beach as you come down the Alex / Mooloolaba hill, and as you enter Mooloolaba Beach on the left, the first sharp turn on the left after the traffic light will take you into the car park.
Marshalls will meet you at the car park entrance and they will have your registered details and your site allocation. You will be escorted to your allocated site.
If you are approaching Sunshine Coast from the from the South, then the Brisbane Road detour will take you to the Alexandra Headland Hill. As you go up the hill take the U -turn at the traffic lights half way up the hill and then the beachside lane as you come down the hill and to Mooloolaba Beach, and hard left into the car park as above.
Overflow vendors and volunteers parking
If you have additional vehicles, we have parking for volunteers and vendors at Moololaba school. This car park is not open to the public. Marshalls will meet you at the entrance to the car park opposite Coles in Walan Street, and allow you in to the school car park if you are known to the organisers.
