The Central Coast has wrapped up its rockabilly celebration of all things 50’s Americana, with the conclusion of ChromeFest 2018, and according to Central Coast Council, this year’s event brought almost $6m to the northern Central Coast economy.
Central Coast Council Unit Manager Community Partnerships, Glenn Cannard, said ChromeFest 2018 saw approximately 55,000 people visit The Entrance over the three day festival. “ChromeFest is a popular annual community major event and is continually growing,” Cannard said.
“The event this year had a larger footprint and attracted larger crowds, with over 450 show cars on display. “The car cruise saw the streets lined with people enjoying the sound of the motors, and the new Kidz Zone proved to be very popular with the younger festival goers.
“The Sydney Swing Katz did not disappoint with their new dance routines, more participants entered the annual retro fashion parade, and International sensation, The Class of 58, were a huge success with the crowd. “We are delighted that ChromeFest has been so successful for the community, and look forward to supporting local people and local businesses through this event and similar events in the future,” Cannard said.
