Fans of the fash­ion and rac­ing ducks Gemima and Don­ald which parade down the cat­walk will have to get a front row seat this year as owner Bryan Har­ring­ton is re­tir­ing at the end of this year.

Other high­lights in­clude the Moss­man State High School concert band which will per­form prior to the fire­works while there will be plenty of tal­ent on dis­play at the Vic­tor Crees Pavilion in­clud­ing lo­cal art, craft, pho­tog­ra­phy, needle­work, agri­cul­ture and culi­nary de­lights.
