ROLL up, roll up – the 2013 Casella Wines Griffith Show is almost here.
Celebrating everything that’s good about Griffith, from our proud agricultural heritage to the liveliness of our youth, the annual event has something for everyone.
All the action takes place this Sunday and Monday, with gates opening at 9am both days.
During the two-day event there will be a Repco Beaut Ute Competition, showing off the area’s hottest utes.
Daredevils will also enjoy the demolition derby where adrenalin junkies take to the arena to smash each other up.
Watch these petrolheads go head-to-head as the last car going takes the prize.
If arts and crafts are more your pace, don’t miss a visit to Davidge Pavilion, where the region’s best knitting, patchwork, cooking, preserves, arts and photography are on display while the inland garden, specially constructed for this year’s show in a Chelsea Flower Show style is sure to impress.
When the going gets a bit too hectic, pop into Woodside Hall where Can Assist will be serving morning and afternoon tea.
