Lower Main Road in Observatory will be closed on Sunday 23 March from 9:00 to all vehicles other than those dating from the late-1970s and earlier. The street will be lined with parked vintage and classic motorbikes and cars for Vintage Obs Day.
The organisers of VOD say they will be encouraging members of the public to dress up in whichever period – up until late-1970s – most appeals to them. Prizes will be given to the best dressed at the event.
All the venues that will be open to the public will participate by playing music, whether live or over sound system, set in a chosen period and their staff will wear clothing depicting that same chosen decade.
The venues will have breakfast and lunch specials for those who will participate in the event by bringing along their cars and bikes to take Obs back – visually – to its glory days. A Vintage Fair and Autojumble will take place on the green opposite Spar.
