“We have the races, live music and plenty of entertainment for the kids,” he said.
“The Ryde Building Company football sprint will also be a great and fun highlight of the day, where we have two players from each club battle it out.”
Revellers can enjoy plenty of live music this year and Pinstripe will be taking to the stage from 5.30 to 9pm.
“We’ll be open later this year, which is great, and for the kids we have a bouncy castle, a Reptile Haven petting zoo and an inflatable obstacle course,” Mr Young said.
“It’s a great day family day out and our biggest attended meet of the year.”
