This year’s festival will play host to the inaugural “Cooly Rocks On™ Billy Cart Grand Prix”.
A Billycart Grand Prix themed to the Era of the 50s, 60s and 70s including a fancy dress and character competitions based on the Wacky Races cartoons of the 1960s/ 1970s. A billy cart derby that is designed to help the youth, business and community come together with projects inspired by our imagination, created with our inspiration and developed with old minds and young hearts.
Held on the streets of Coolangatta over the event weekend the Billy Cart Grand Prix will consist of two levels of participation –
