Inverell Events Inc is inviting the wider region to get ready for an inaugural Sapphire Rock 'N' Roll Festival from August 30 to September 1.
In support of local businesses, drought-affected farmers and to provide an opportunity for the community to enjoy old-fashioned family fun, Inverell will stage the action-packed rock 'n' roll festival.
Celebrating all things 50s and 60s rock 'n' roll vintage, the weekend will kick off with a delivery of fresh Krispy Kreme donuts on the Friday by Fly Corporate.
Whether its original glazed or an assorted dozen, you can easily get your hands on some mouth watering donuts delivered by a 1958 red Morris Minor.
But hurry, orders will close on August 16 at 5pm. Head to Eventbrite to order yourself some delicious Krispy Kreme treats.
Later on the Friday, Inverell's Transport Museum will turn into a classic drive-in, complete with popcorn, drinks and hot dogs delivered to your car.
Saturday will be filled to the brim with a classic pin-up pageant for guys and gals, competitions, fashion parades, dance displays, vintage car bake-off, entertainers, fossicking for sapphires, Billy cart derby competitions, kids games, tug-of-war, retro displays and great prizes.
Throughout the day the vintage cars, caravans, bikes, shop window displays, outfits and music over the town's loudspeakers will add to the atmosphere.
If you would like to participate in the Sapphire City Billy Cart Derby, entry forms will need to be completed and a gold coin entry per driver paid. Races will be held on a grass hill in Lions Park.
