More than 2,000 local car enthusiasts gathered at Flagstone’s Saturdaze Big Night Out on Saturday 30 July to celebrate their shared passion and raise awareness of men’s mental health.
The free community event hosted by Saturdaze at Mondaze and Peet Limited showcased over 150 mixed generation vehicles, from cars and trucks to motorbikes and 4x4s.
Fun for the whole family was on offer, including amusement rides, entertainment from local musicians, and local eateries offering their locally loved meal deals.
Jae Martin, owner at Mondaze and the event organiser, said Saturdaze at Mondaze was launched to unite the local community and encourage men to openly discuss mental health.
“Over the past year, our monthly Saturday organic car meet has grown to attract between 80 and 100 vehicles, outgrowing the carpark at The Markets Flagstone.
“To continue to support this growth and foster candid conversations between families, friends and neighbours, we’ve partnered with Peet Limited to expand the event,” he said.
During the event, Queensland Police Service offered free car inspections and consultations to car enthusiasts about vehicle and bike customisation that meet Queensland standards.
Peet Limited CEO and Managing Director, Brendan Gore, said Saturdaze at Mondaze is a testament to the growing community spirit shared by all Flagstonians.
“Flagstone is one of South East Queensland’s largest and fastest growing new residential areas in Australia, attracting more than 20 new families every month.
“Peet’s long-term vision for bringing Flagstone to life is becoming more of a reality every day.
“Mondaze is just one example of how local Flagstone businesses, and the community are coming together to support each other and celebrate their shared interests.” he said.
Saturdaze Big Night Out was also supported by the Flagstone Men’s Shed, a community association that provides practical support to advance the well-being and health of their male members and to encourage social inclusion.
