Carisbrook is set to become the home of all things hot rod, motorcycle and rock and roll this weekend as the 10th Chopped event rolls into town.
One of the most popular events of its type, the three day event sees people travel from across the world to attend and encompasses live music, food, entertainment, everything for motoring enthusiasts and plenty more.
Normally held just a stone’s throw away in Newstead, after a two year break the event is making its debut appearance in Carisbrook and Chopped director Kyle Ford said it’s an event which leaves nothing to be desired.
“The simplest way to wrap it up is it’s a hot rod, motorcycle, rock and roll festival,” he said.
“It runs over three days and there are always a lot of people on site. You don’t have to be a car or motorcycle person, you can just be here for the fun and live music.
“A lot of people just come for one day, some people bring cars for the show and shine and a lot of people come to just have a look and enjoy it.”
Chopped kicks off today, Friday, October 4 and runs through until Sunday, October 6 at the Maryborough Harness Racing Club. Tickets can be bought on the gate with day passes starting at $50. Concessions are also available.
