11th Belfast to Portrush Cavalcade

THE 11th Belfast-Portrush Cavalcade organised by East Antrim Old Vehicle Club (EAOVC) will take place on Sunday, August 5.

The popular annual fundraising event was due to be officially launched at the council’s civic headquarters at Mossley Mill last week by the Mayor of Newtownabbey, Alderman Billy Webb.

EAOVC President Mr Robert Raj revealed that the Cavalcade would have a different format this year.

“Thanks to permission granted by Newtownabbey Borough Council we will be assembling at Mossley Mill where all entrants will have their breakfast before the start,” Mr Raj told the Times.

“The Cavalcade will leave Mossley Mill between 10.30am and 11am and pass through Templepatrick and Antrim before proceeding direct to Portrush for a static display between 1pm and 4pm at Coleraine Borough Council’s Dunluce Centre in Portrush. The Cavalcade will finish off at the Royal Court Hotel, Portrush for a meal and the Finishers Awards.”

The charity chosen by EAOV to benefit from the Cavalcade this year is premature and vulnerable baby charity, Tiny Life.

Entry form are available now and the closing date for entries is June 22.

All vehicles, including motorcycles and commercial vehicles registered on or before December 31 are eligible to take part. Entries and changes cannot be made on the morning of the Cavalcade.
