Cow­town to moo again

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Front Page -

The South West is get­ting ready to cel­e­brate all things dairy to­mor­row, as the sixth an­nual Deja Moo Fair takes place in Cowaramup.

The event is the town’s cel­e­bra­tion of its dairy­ing his­tory and marks the an­niver­sary of more than 30 cow stat­ues in­stalled along the main street. In 2014, Deja Moo smashed the Guin­ness World Record for the big­gest gath­er­ing of peo­ple dressed as cows. A to­tal of 1352 peo­ple wore cow one­sies to break the record.

This year’s theme is ve­hi­cles, and a line-up of vin­tage ma­chin­ery and a vet­eran car ex­hibit will be on dis­play, along with mar­kets and food stalls, live mu­sic and art, chil­dren’s games and a dis­play by vol­un­teer fire­fight­ers.

The sig­na­ture event is the Cow­pat Tro­phy Race for home­made miniature wooden cars.

The fair runs from 9am-3pm at the Cowaramup Oval, Cowaramup Hall and Dug­gan Pavil­ion.
