The Western Star - - NEWS / WELCOME -

THE Roma His­tor­i­cal Precinct will host its sec­ond Roma Plough Day on Sun­day, May 6, at Mead­ow­bank Mu­seum and Farm­stay.

Back by pop­u­lar de­mand, the event in­cludes such trac­tor-re­lated com­pe­ti­tions as the trac­tor pull, mad trac­tors and the hand-held plough chal­lenge.

Spec­ta­tors are en­cour­aged to come and check out the vin­tage and souped-up farm ma­chines.

Com­peti­tors are in­vited to bring their own trac­tor for the plough­ing com­pe­ti­tion, where two-man teams will vie for brag­ging rights.

The event will also in­clude a his­tor­i­cal ve­hi­cles dis­play, great for car lovers.

There will be camp­sites, food and drinks avail­able at the event, with guests en­cour­aged to bring their own chairs and get in early for the best van­tage point.

The event will run from 9am–3pm.

For in­for­ma­tion, phone Al­lan on 0488 270 961 or check the Roma His­tor­i­cal Precinct Face­book page.
