MORE than 5000 people visited Yanchep National Park on Saturday to celebrate all things retro from music to fashion to hot rods.

The City of Wanneroo’s free Retro Rewind festival celebrated days gone by with a line-up of musicians who had the crowd shimmying, shaking and grooving to soul, R&B, motown and funk.

Headliner Bloom kicked off her 2017 national tour belting out tributes to Adele and Amy Winehouse, while support acts The Mastertones and Milford Street Shakers produced old school beats.

The Vintage Collective Markets had more than 60 stalls hosting WA’s largest collection of vintage and rockabilly-themed goods and recycled and retro-style fashions.

Other event attractions included a vintage hot rod display, swing dance workshops, retro arcade games and vintage lawn games.

One of the highlights was Miss Lady Lace’s pin-up parade, which celebrated the beauty and individuality of women embracing their inner pin-up.

Free children’s activities included a bouncy castle, flower crowns, vintage aeroplane making, vintage photo booth and face painting.

National park entry fees were waived for Retro Rewind attendees who also had the chance to explore the park and participate in koala walks.

The City’s next free event is Global Beats & Eats on Saturday, March 18. Book tickets at www.wanneroo.wa.gov.au .
