Yamba Rod Run rides in style

YAMBA will take on a vintage vibe this weekend with the 22nd Yamba Rod Run.

Restored hot rods will cruise throughout town, bringing a new shade of colour to the streets.

Clarence River Tourism manager Jenny Massie said the event was a great family day for all.

"The Yamba Rod Run is a great event growing in size since it first came to Yamba 22 years ago," Ms Massie said.

"The spectacular parade and show and shine display of up to 450 hot rods brings colour and life to the streets.

"It is a great drawcard for the Clarence and injects approximately $1.7million visitor spending, according to Destination NSW figures into the local economy, with many of the members staying up to a week in the area."

The exhibition and show started yesterday and runs until Sunday.
