Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - NEWS -

TUES­DAY’S Vic­to­ria Racing Club spring racing car­ni­val and its Mel­bourne Cup may have been a few hun­dred kilo­me­tres away but dis­tance was no bar­rier to Cup Day cel­e­bra­tions in Beech­worth.

More than 80 race­go­ers gather at the Old Pri­ory to en­joy the fes­tiv­i­ties and watch the live broad­cast race.

In be­tween the gal­lops they were en­ter­tained by the Kissin’ Cousins and their su­perla­tive in­ter­pre­ta­tion of blue­grass and old time mu­sic.

BUB­BLING: Beech­worth’s Eileen and Steve Wal­lace from Barns­ley House B&B en­joyed a glass of sparkling in the spring gar­dens of the Old Pri­ory.
