Family-friendly agriculture event There will be fun for the whole family at the 54th annual Elmore Field Days, which falls in the school holiday period for the first time in years. The annual three-day event begins on October 3, bringing together the best of agriculture in an inspiring, informative and demonstrationpacked event. More than 700 exhibitors will display their products and expertise at the Elmore Events Centre this year; including tools and hardware, pools, machinery plants, steel yards, cattle crushes and more. There will be plenty for the littlies too with jumping castles, face painting and entertainment by Quirky Tales performer Narelle Stone—ensuring children of all ages enjoy the day. Public relations officer John Giffin said with hundreds of exhibitors and the general interest pavilions, attendees would be spoilt for choice. “It’s basically a one-stop shop for all your farming needs. If we haven’t got an exhibitor there that has what you’re after, they’ll certainly know what direction to head you in,” he said. “It is really an event for the whole

family, there’s plenty of general interest and recreation exhibitors covering everything from fishing and camping.” A wide range of machinery will be on show at the event, and in-paddock demonstrations give onlookers a chance to see the machines in action. “The big machinery is the key attraction for the bigger kids; you don’t have to be a little kid to enjoy hopping into the big machinery,” Mr Giffin said. The famed Ag Arts Wear competition will also return for another year, with crowds treated to a masterclass on turning everyday farm materials into intricate and incredible fashion with parades showing off the wonderful creations twice a day. Elmore Field Days will be held from October 3 to 5, from 8.30am to 5.30pm, at the Elmore Events Centre at 48 Rosaia Rd, Elmore. Tickets are available at the gate priced at $20 for adults, $10 for children 12 years and over, with

children under 12 admitted free. For more information visit or
