THE BOOGALOO INVITATIONAL, VICTORIA

THE END OF APRIL SAW A TWO AND-A-HALF DAY, BEER FUELLED EVENT CONSISTING OF HOTRODS, MOTORCYCLES, BURGERS AND DAMN GOOD COMPANY- WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR?! THE EVENT IN QUESTION WAS THE ANNUAL BOOGALOO INVITATIONAL & TRUST US THIS WAS NOT ONE TO MISS OUT ON!

 

THE BOOGALOO INVITATIONAL IS AN INVITE-ONLY VINTAGE CAR & BIKE SHOW HELD IN CASTLEMAINE, VICTORIA- PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE TRADITIONAL HOTROD SHOWS OF THE PREVIOUS DECADES & PLAYING HOST TO A LIST OF THE COUNTRY’S BEST PRE-1984 CHOPPERS, BOBBERS, CUSTOMS AND HOTRODS. EACH YEAR THE SHOW CONTINUES TO GROW, YET IN THE EYES OF FOUNDERS TESHA & DES, BIGGER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER, AND IT IS IN FACT THE REFINED IDEAS, THE AWESOME ATMOSPHERE & THE GENUINE LOVE FOR THESE BUILDS THAT SETS IT APART.

 

THE DAY BEGAN WITH A 3 HOUR RIDE, VIA THE SCENIC ROUTE, THROUGH VICTORIA’S SERIOUSLY IMPRESSIVE COUNTRYSIDE, TO THE WATTLE FLAT RESERVE- A SCENE REFLECTIVE OF AN OVERSIZED, YET JUST AS CHILLED BACKYARD PARTY. AS WELL AS THE EPIC EXHIBITIONS & TRADE SHOWS, THIS YEAR SHOWCASED A NUMBER OF SHORT FILMS, GUEST DJS, THE DIRTY DOOZEN ART SHOW AND APPEARANCES FROM ARTIST KEITH WEESNER & PROFESSIONAL SKATER/ CHOPPER BUILDER MAX SCHAAF!

 

OVERALL A F*CKING EPIC WEEKEND WITH REAL PEOPLE DEDICATED TO THE MOTO LIFESTYLE.
