MORE than 600 people braved hot temperatures on Saturday at the annual Kaniva Car and Bike Show.
Show committee chairman Eddy Rowe said although numbers were down on previous years, he was pleased with how the day went.
“It was a very hot day, but the oval was quite colourful with a variety of vehicles, displays and activities,” he said.
He said there were 81 vehicle entries, which came from Victoria, South Australia and NSW.
Also on display were the Kaniva Fire Brigade, Kaniva State Emergency Service and a display of go-karts from the Tatiara Karting Club.
A highlight of the day was the Xtreme Trials show.
“Adrian and Tanya Harry from South Australia presented two great motorbike riding performances,” Mr Rowe said.
“Other activities included segways, a merry-go-round, jumping castle, crank-in-the-tank and face painting.”
Mr Rowe thanked everyone who helped on the day.
“Especially those who loaned industrial fans and air-conditioners to help beat the heat,” he said.
“Also, thank you to all the entrants and spectators who came on the hot day.”
A new category this year was people’s choice for best boat, which was won by Kaniva’s Kelvin Moar who entered a 1968 white Filam boat.
The overall people’s choice award was won by Kaniva’s Harold Meinl, who entered a 1969 Mustang.
Best hot rod went to Horsham’s Jay Miller and best car within 50-kilometres of Kaniva was won by Nhill’s Jayden Preston.
Proceeds from the event will go towards Kaniva Lions Club projects.
