Thanks to major sponsor ADL Equipment the 25th of August 2012 will see the 9th consecutive Millmerran Sheep Races cater for all tastes and all budgets.
Gates open at 11am and the six race program begins at 1pm with the calcutta finale at 4.30pm. ABC radio personality David Illiffe shall compere the day with football legend Shane Webcke helping to get the sheep down the race track.
The Millmerran Sheep Races is a fun and high-spirited day held at the Millmerran Showgrounds, a collaboration of efforts by the St Joseph's Parents & Friends and wider community, hosting a day of musical entertainment and children’s activities open to the whole community. The Parents & Friends Association realise the expense of taking the family out for an occasion and are committed to making sure that every family can attend the day if they wish to, despite the financial hardship they may be experiencing. With this in mind we do not charge an entry fee, allowing spectators to enjoy themselves without financial burden.
Children are entertained with a “side show alley” style activity area for the young ones, face painting and this year we have secured the very popular Rock Climbing Wall as well as the ever popular Bucking Bull. Children purchase an affordable armband which allows them access to the rides all day. We have found that if the children have fun then the parents will enjoy themselves even more.
Musical entertainment is another important part of our event, significantly enhancing the enjoyment of the day for all age groups. This year we are delighted to bring to Millmerran the fantastic Brisbane band “Golden Child”. In keeping with our local theme, the opening act for “Golden Child” is the extremely talented Millmerran band “CC & the Crusade”.
Fashions of the Field will be hotly contested with a large array of prizes so make sure you dress to impress our judges. You will also be entertained with local business "Maylee Boutique" showing off their exquisite garments in this year’s Fashion Parade. To top the day off there shall be wood fired pizzas served for dinner so you can dance till late.
Bring along swag, tent or caravan, hook up to one of the many powered sites, camp the night and join us for breakfast the next morning.
