Get your (vintage) motor running
THE Rum City Vintage Machinery Club and the Bullyard Hall Committee are holding a Vintage Machinery Rally this weekend at the Bullyard Recreation Grounds on Bucca Rd, Bullyard.
It’s an opportunity for the entire family to stroll around and view demonstrations of working antique machinery, vintage cars, trucks and tractors.
A grand parade is set for 11am on both days of the event including a spectacular whip-cracking competition, a fantastic pet parade and an unusual pet and snake competition.
Rum City Vintage Machinery Club secretary Alan Riseley said the club rallies draw in crowds from around the region.
”It’s an opportunity for people to see old farming equipment in use and see how things were done,” Mr Riseley said.
”We will have a tractor pull, wood-cutting displays, butter making and plenty of interactive displays,”
The Vintage club have attended events such as the Childers and Gin Gin shows.
Visitors have the opportunity to watch oldstyle wood working, chaff cutting and browse the many market stalls for arts, crafts and antiques. Food and drink available. For inquiries phone 4159 9984 or 4157 8246.
