Greazefest 2014 - Cars, Pin Ups, Dancing, Vintage and Fun.....

We had a wonderful day out yesterday at the GreazeFest Kustom Kulture Festival in Brisbane at the Rocklea Showgrounds. The festival is a three day event filled with cool cars, rockabilly music, fashion and pinups, vintage bikes, pin stripers, tattoos, markets and so much more, including fun for the kids.

From the moment we walked through the gates, the kids were excited and were calling to us to look at the cool cars, all the colour and girls.


We walked through the market stalls and vintage sellers sites. Ben looked for old style bowling shirts and Cohen couldn't help but check out hats.


We stopped by our dear Celia's stall and ogled Kittys Vintage Kitsch wares.


I stopped this mother and daughter and asked if I could take their picture because they looked so lovely together, dressed for the occasion. The young girls' grandmother made the dress for her and one in another print for her sister. They were impeccably well made and it was a delight to see mothers and daughters dressed so lovely and enjoying the day together.


Cohen and Sarah got inked......well airbrushed and then proceeded to show them off to all who would look their way. 


We stopped by to see the fuss at the Trash Monkey kissing booth and saw that photos were being taken of the newly crowned Miss Burlesque - Miss Dolly Cakes along with other Pin Up models. When I looked down I saw my wee Sarah copying the poses of the girls. She was in awe of them and thought they were so pretty and despite being the shy type at times she was even keen to talk with them when I suggested she could say hi. The girls were so sweet and attentive to her, they really made her day.


Finally before leaving we listened to some music and admired the dancing (how I wish a stuck with Rock 'n' Rock Dancing....maybe again one day) and enjoyed watching the sheer delight on the kids faces as they hammered up down an inflatable amusement ride slide, before heading home.


It was a wonderful day at the festival and it was great to see so many families out with children and all the generations represented. Everyone was so happy, chatty and positive, and being our first time having a chance to attend in recent years, we had a such a great time we will be looking forwarded to attending again next year.

I so wanted to go this year. Worked yesterday and with a sick little man today. We are housebound. Though probably a good thing I didn't go, would have wanted all of the cars.

What a fun event to attend. The beautiful blue skies would have made it extra enjoyable.
