People came from near and far to enjoy Holden Day in Mooroopna on Sunday.

Car enthusiasts had plenty to look at during Holden Day in Mooroopna on Sunday.

Verong Vittles and Maloo Owners Victoria came together in honour of Kenny ‘‘Big Wheels’’ Jager to celebrate Holden Day, with the event also being a fundraiser for charity Love Me Love You.

Verong Vittles’ Kerrie Verhoeven said the event raised just less than $1500 and featured more than 120 cars.

Holden Day was on across from Verong Vittles on McLennan St and included a mini market plus a guest appearance from Love Me Love You’s Lance Picioane.

Ms Verhoeven said Holden Day was the first event of its kind in Mooroopna as the town did not host car shows.

‘‘We’re hoping to turn it into an annual event because it was such a successful event,’’ she said.

‘‘To have the support we had was absolutely amazing.’’

Ms Verhoeven said people travelled from far and wide to attend the event, with some making the trip from South Australia.

‘‘No-one does anything like this... it brought a lot of people to town,’’ she said.

‘‘It’s putting Mooroopna on the map a bit more.’’
