Some of the region's finest vehicles thundered through Main St on Saturday, all to promote the Beyond the Black heavy metal festival at Trentham Racecourse on New Year's Eve.

Saturday's Bods and Bikes parade of about 15 vehicles and 20 bikes travelled from Silverstream to the city centre, lunched at the Rimutaka Tavern before a photo stop outside The Mall.

Festival organiser and parade co-organiser Jenny George said Upper Hutt turned on a great reception on Saturday with many people turning up to see the cars on display.

It is the second time the festival has been held at the racecourse.

The final wave of promotion for the New Year event is about to start.

The event will be indoors and so is not weather-dependent.

Information and tickets are at beyondtheblack.co.nz
