Wintersun rocks loud and proud

THE final Wintersun in Tweed Heads and Coolangatta got off to a rocking start on Saturday and it's showing no signs of slowing down just yet.

Big crowds of thousands have descended upon the twin towns for the final event and today is no different.

Charm schools, 50s swimsuit catwalks and all the hot rods and classic cars you could ever need have captured the attention of enthusiasts.

The annual street parade down Marine Parade on Saturday morning was the main attraction for rock 'n' roll revellers looking to enjoy one final long weekend celebrating the nostalgia event on the border.

Floats and semi-trailers carrying bands and dance groups from as far as Sydney held a rock party down the beach side street to the delight of the cheering crowd.

Car enthusiasts had more than they could handle with classic cars and hot rods lining the streets for all to see and the free music also got revellers rocking in the street.
