Beach Hop 2012 – Gorgeous Girls & Wicked Wheels
Beach Hop will be held 20 – 24 March 2013 in Whangamata. Celebrate the 50’s and 60’s – listen to rock ‘n’ roll bands and see up to 1000 hot rods and classic cars in the Grand Parade on Saturday morning. In 2011 retro caravans were introduced, in 2013 Vintage Caravan Magazine are sponsoring the Retro Caravan Show. Update: Cool Caravans (2013 Beach Hop photos)
Saturday is the best day for visitors – the Grand Parade, Junkyard Fashion Show, Hop Idol finals and Retro Beauty Show are a few of the events on the schedule. Accommodation may be scarce but Whangamata is easily reached in a couple of hours from Auckland, Tauranga and Rotorua.
If you’re a fan of classic cars and hot rods don’t miss it, you may even be able to take home more than Beach Hop memories – you could win either a Ford Falcon Futura, Ranchero or Retro Caravan.
