Cooly Rocks On this week
Posted on 29-May-2013
The countdown is on and excitement is building in Coolangatta and the surrounding suburbs on the southern end of the Gold Coast - just 2 days remain until the Cooly Rocks On festival begins!
Just 2 days until Coolangatta is taken over by family fun, vintage cars, bands, dancing competitions, retro market stalls and all the fun of the 50's & 60's. Make sure you don't miss the big highlights of the Street Parade, the Oodle-Poodle Parade and the nightly convoy of over 1,000 retro cars as they roll their way from Kirra through to Tweed.
