Families will be catered for with a jumping castle, bungee run, mechanical bull, mobile animal farm and face painting lined up for the kids to enjoy from 11am to 3pm.

“We also have an enviable prize pack worth over $4000* to giveaway on the day thanks to Hans Trailers & Livestock Equipment, Iron Jack beer, Sirromet and VIP Magic Pass,” he said.
