Hundreds to do brunch in Tocumwal
One of Tocumwal’s biggest town gatherings is on again this year but this time it will be raising money for Drought Relief.
The Tocumwal Big Brunch which usually draws well over 500 people every year will be hosted this Sunday, November 4.
Due to works at the Tocumwal Foreshore, the site for this year’s event is the Tocumwal Racecourse.
Patrons are encouraged to bring their own picnic rugs and chair, in support of drought relief, but also local community groups will be cooking up a storm to keep your belly full.
The Tocumwal Public School P&C is in charge of the bacon and eggs, the cricket club has the pancakes, Tocumwal’s ice creamery will be making waffles with ice cream.
And it isn’t an event in Tocumwal without the rotary group serving orange juice.
Tocumwal Chamber of Commerce member Liz Lang said afternoon for all.
‘‘It’s a great chance to spend time with family, support drought relief and the local community groups.
‘‘We have free entertainment for the kids including train rides, a jumping castle and face painting.
Mrs Lang said the racecourse was chosen as it was one of the town’s ‘‘hidden gems’’.
‘‘We decided the raceclub because they have a wonderful facility and we’re going to start making good use of the racecourse for future events.’’
To pre-purchase a ticket visit the Tocumwal Visitors Information Centre. Every pre-purchased ticket will go into the draw to win a Tocumwal Raceclub membership for next year.
Other raffles will be available throughout the day.
Entry cost is $2 with everything kicking off at 11am until 3pm. it’ll be a fun
