The Body Art Carnivale!

The Australian Body Art Carnivale was held last week in Eumundi, Queensland. Eumundi is a gorgeous little town on the Sunshine Coast, famous for its markets which are held on Wednesday's and Saturday's each week.

The Carnivale is a celebration of colour, with many different art exhibitions and competitions held over the weekend. Wicked Campers jumped on board the event this year and sponsored the Vehicle "Show and Shine" competition and the Wicked "Vehicle Art" comp. We enlisted 5 local artists to paint our Wicked vans.

Now because we needed 5 vans up there, we needed 5 drivers. So we made it a girls weekend and drove up the coast on Friday afternoon; dumped the vehicles and hit the Masked Gallery Walk, a "pub crawl"of all the Art Galleries spread through the town. It was such a great event, we met dozens of awesome people, drank bubblies and ate delicious food (oh, the churros)!

The entire weekend was fabulous - a great mix of entertainment, music, food, friendships and karaoke. Congratulations to David Houghton who won the Vehicle Art competition with his fabulous "Avatar'' themed Wicked Camper.
