Country fun on offer at Mangrove Mountain Fair

THE fun-filled Mangrove Mountain & Districts Country Fair is on again on Saturday, October 29.

Enjoy a great day of country fun. It's a place to relax, pet baby farm animals, buy plants from our local nurseries, watch spinners and discover a wide range of local live music and entertainment, while eating sumptuous local food and beverages.

The annual event showcases everything from pony rides to muscle cars, native and local farm animals and birds as well as steam-powered machines and great art and craft exhibits.

There are billycart races, a chocolate wheel, games, local farm produce, cakes, jams and scones, as well as a few surprises thrown in.

The Mangrove Mountain Country Fair has been running every year since 1963 as a community fundraiser when locals needed to find funding for the bush nurse - a very valuable source of comfort for mountain families. Although the bush nurse has long gone, this extremely popular event has continued as a fundraiser for local community groups.

Volunteers play an essential role and we need lots of help setting up the day before and packing up after the event.

Anyone wanting to help or get involved in any way is encouraged to contact us: by email mmcountryfair @hotmail.com or phone publicity officer Shane on 0417 436 529.
