THE annual Dimboola Swap Meet has traders from near and far ready to grab a bargain on Saturday. 

Little Desert Rodders and Collectors’ Peter Hutchinson said there would be plenty to see and do during the one-day event. 

He said the day would start early with the gates opening at 7.30am

Mr Hutchinson said it would be an inexpensive event with at $5 entry fee into Dimboola Oval. 

He said he was expecting a good day out. 

“We have people travelling from all over the region and even interstate to attend this year’s event,” he said. 

“They are all looking to grab a bargain.” 

Mr Hutchinson said the swap meet would attract a decent crowd. 

“It has always been popular in the past so, we are expecting between 700 to 800 people to attend this year,” he said. 

Out on the oval, he said he expected 60 to 80 cars to be on show. 

Mr Hutchinson said there would be up to 70 traders with plenty of parts ready to sell. 

“We will have over 15 restored cars on display as well,” he said. 

Mr Hutchinson said the Little Desert Rodders and Collectors had always been a family orientated club. 

“When the adults are searching for a bargain, the children will have plenty of activities to keep themselves entertained,” he said. 

“We have rides for the kids and a car show.” 

He said the swap meet was a great community event and encouraged people to come along and show support while grabbing a bargain.
