Well it wouldn’t be a nostalgia festival with celebrating fashion and style and for the ladies there are not one but two pageants on offer at this year’s Cooly Rocks On festival.
The Miss Cooly Rocks On™ Pageant highlights the synergy between ‘40s and ‘50s vintage glamour fashion and the annual festival. Hosted by Miss Chrissy from The Lindy Charm School, the event will take place on Thursday, June 7 in the Tweed Heads Civic Centre Auditorium from 6pm to 8pm.
The Miss Rockabilly Gold Coast contest showcases the rockabilly fashion styles and genre of its time, and a love of the music, culture, cars and lifestyle. Miss Rockabilly has a ‘wiggle’ in her walk and expects to have her picture pinned to your wall! It will take place the following evening, June 8 from 6.30pm – 10pm, also at the Tweed Heads Civic Centre and involves heats and a final.
“There are so many wonderful positives with entering a contest like Miss CRO and Miss Rockabilly, but none more than the bonds you forge with other likeminded entrants, the new friends you make, and the confidence in which it gives you. In a safe and nurtured environment, you can take your stage and be you!” says Miss Chrissy.
Entry for both events are open now, simply apply at www.coolyrockson.com. Entries close May 7, so be quick!
