Sum­mer rac­ing

Manawatu Guardian - - HOME & GARDEN -

Fam­i­lies, friends, lo­cals and out-of-town­ers joined in the fes­tiv­i­ties at the Mar­ton Jockey Club for the In­ter­is­lander Sum­mer Fes­ti­val last Satur­day. Mar­ton Jockey Club spokes­woman Deanna Carr said the races are a fam­ily favourite in the Manawatu¯ . Fes­ti­val-go­ers were treated to a day in the sun with live mu­sic, lo­cal food of­fer­ings, and ex­hil­a­rat­ing races.

The youngest race­go­ers were kept en­ter­tained with tug-of-war, sack-rac­ing, and face paint­ing.

A lo­cal fam­ily won the Rock the Ferry com­pe­ti­tion and took home a $500 In­ter­is­lander travel voucher to help them ex­plore the coun­try.
