DESPITE the miserable weather, a game few still turned out for the inaugural Monbulk Late Night Shopping Cruze last week.
Organiser of the event and president of the Monbulk Business Network John Coleman said although the turnout was not ideal, the next event will have plenty of classic cars and bikes on display.
“A few cars showed up and braved the elements but next month we are hoping for better weather and a much bigger turn out,” he said.
“There was a lot of interest in this show and a lot of people had intended on coming but the weather was just a turn off.
“We are going to solider on and make the next one bigger and better.”
The Monbulk Late Night Shopping Cruze is on every second Wednesday of the month and is an initiative by the Monbulk Business Network to promote local shopping in Monbulk.
The event is free of charge however any profits made from donation tins located in various shops throughout the street are donated to the Monbulk CFA and other local charities.
Mr Coleman said organisers expect between 50 and 100 cars at the next late night shopping event based on the interest they have had.
“Car enthusiasts love to get together and network and it is the perfect opportunity to bring business in the town and for people to shop locally,” he said.
The next Monbulk Late Night Shopping Cruze will be held on Wednesday 11 December from 6pm to 9pm along the Main Street of Monbulk.
