Some of the eighty-two vehicles and more than 250 bashers packed into the school yard off Binni Creek Road, for breakfast and mingling before continuing their journey.
Cartoon themed cars, supported by suited up bashers, proved most popular among the Holman Place Public School students, who received plenty of giveaways throughout the morning.
Variety NSW motoring events manager Stuart Telfer described the morning as “beautiful” and said the kids had a great time.
“The kids have been fantastic. We had plenty of time to talk to a lot of them. A lot of the bashers had giveaways like beanies and hats. There was things galore for the kids so they had a great time,” Stuart said.
“The bashers get dressed up to match their cars and the kids just love it.”
Variety donated a $3,500 swing for the playground and also offered one lucky student a 15-minute helicopter ride above Cowra.
Emily Sheehan had the thrill of riding in the chopper, which her father Wayne Sheehan said she would have loved.
School assistant principal Bryce Toohey thanked everyone who helped make the morning such a success.
“It went really well for an early start,” he said.
Stuart Telfer said Variety hopes to raise more than $800,000 through this year’s event.
Day three ended at Narrandera.
The event finishes at Newcastle this Sunday.
