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.
