More than 5,000 people descended on Yanchep National Park on Saturday to celebrate all things retro from music to fashion to vintage hot rods.
The City of Wanneroo’s free Retro Rewind festival celebrated days gone by with a stellar line-up of musicians who had the crowd shimmying, shaking and grooving to soul, R&B, motown and funk.
Headliner “Bloom” kicked off her 2017 national tour belting out tributes to Adele and Amy Winehouse, while support acts The Mastertones and Milford Street Shakers brought the stage to life with uplifting old school beats.
The Vintage Collective Markets were a huge hit with over 60 stalls hosting WA’s largest collection of vintage and rockabilly themed goods and recycled and retro-style fashions.
Other event attractions included a vintage hot rod display, swing dance workshops, retro arcade games and vintage lawn games.
One of the highlights was Miss Lady Lace’s pin-up parade which was a fabulous celebration of the beauty and individuality of women embracing their inner pin-up.
Children were delighted by free activities including a bouncy castle, flower crowns, vintage aeroplane making, vintage photo booth and face painting.
Yanchep Park entry fees were waived for Retro Rewind attendees who also had the chance to explore the stunning backdrop and participate in koala walks.
The City of Wanneroo thanks event sponsors Lotterywest, North Coast Times, Nova 93.7 and The Vintage Collective Markets.
