FREE FAMILY FUN AT CFMEU LABOUR DAY RACES!

Bring the family trackside this Labour Day Holiday (Monday 5 October) and enjoy the many free family activities on offer.

There’ll be FREE ENTRY, FREE RIDES, FREE FACE PAINTING, FREE ANIMAL FARM, FREE FAIRY FLOSS AND MORE!

You could also WIN a brand new HOLDEN BARINA just by attending the race day! Anybody can go into the draw to win this fantastic prize, and yep, you guessed it, entry into this competition is FREE!

The annual Labour Day Family Fun Day is on for the last long weekend of the year on Monday October 5th for Ipswich residents…one of whom will go home with a brand new car!

As in previous years this family fun day is one of the extremely popular race meetings held at the Ipswich Turf Club, and its popularity increases each and every year.

The Labour Day Family Fun Day will give everyone who attends the opportunity to WIN a BRAND NEW Holden Barina Spark at the races! The Ipswich Turf Club, together with the CFMEU, have organised for the brand new car to be given away at the Family Fun day for one lucky winner.

In keeping with this year’s theme of celebrating 100 years of the Miner’s Federation, 5 patrons who have entered the ‘Win A Car Competition’ will be drawn after race 6 on the day to compete in a game of Quoits after race 7. The winner of this game will win the BRAND NEW Holden Barina Spark!

This competition is something completely different from anything that has been done at the Ipswich Turf Club and it is something fun and exciting that everyone can enter into, plus be a part of. The odds of winning this car are excellent and just by bringing the family to a FREE fun day out you could walk away with a Barina Spark!

This year the Labour Day Family fun day will be commemorating the Miner’s Federation that was formed back in 1915 with the Miner’s Centenary Cup. They held Miners Union Sports days 100
years ago at the Bundamba race track which featured, among the many sports offered on the day, the game of Quoits as well as foot racing which was originally what the Miners Cup was awarded for.

Because of this, the Win a car competition will be decided with a fun, friendly game of Quoits.

As always the Labour Day Family fun day is FREE entry with FREE rides and fun for the whole family.

The fairground this year will have the usual fun entertainment for the kids such as face painting, fairy floss, rides and an animal farm as well as a visit from Gecko’s Wildlife with the family being able to get up close and personal alongside an array of some unique, exciting Australian wildlife!

Kids will be thoroughly entertained while parents can relax and enjoy the excitement of live racing with the scheduled 8 races in play for the afternoon on what always turns out to be a warm and inviting day on the long weekend.

There is always something for the wholefamily and if you’re looking for an inexpensive, exciting and entertaining day to keep your family amused on the public holiday, then the Labour Day FREE Family fun day is definitely for you!
