The inaugural Nostalgia Garage Pedal Car Show’n’Shine event was launched at Cooly Rocks On in 2016 and returns once again to this years’ festival program.

Modern Cooly Rocks On kids will be cruisin’ the streets or pavements in their customised Tot Rods, built from the ground up! Entrants are welcome and Pedal Cars will be judged on their style, connection with the 50s and 60s Cooly Rocks On theme and the appeal they have with the crowd.
