8th Annual Millmerran Sheep Races Saturday, August 27th

Helpers getting the sheep ready.

The gates open at the Millmerran Showgrounds, Cecil Plains Road, 11 am on Saturday the 27th of August 2011. A fun filled day for the whole family with free entry!!!  The first race hits the track at 1.00pm, culminating in the electrifying calcutta at 4.30pm.

Kiddies are kept busy all day with great side show style attractions including Bouncy Boxing, Sumo Wrestling, mechanical bull plus many more. A one off cost of an arm band will have them entertained for hours.

The Macquarie Wagyu Wine and Cocktail Marquee is a place to relax with your friends and enjoy the social side of Sheep Racing. Fashions of the Field is always a hotly contested event with Best Dressed Lady/Man, Best Contemporary Lady, Best Dressed in Wool and Hat of the Day. To keep the crowd entertained AWI, Maylee Boutique, Merino Country, Myer and Lilly Pilly will host a fashion parade at 2pm.

A new attaction this year is the Toowoomba Solar Centre’s Welly Waddle. Punters will line up on the race track in a pair of “wellingtons” to see who will make it to the finish line with their cup still full! Great prizemoney on offer – well worth a run.

...and they're off and racing!

Once the sheep are safely trucked home the evening entertainment begins with Toowoomba band “Solitary Men”, so you can dance the night away.

The Shearers Kitchen will keep you well fed and the evening meal will begin from 5.30pm.

There are plenty of camping spots with a cost of $15 for a powered site. Alternatively for those who don’t feel the need to “rough” it, try Millmerran Village Caravan Park (4695 2020), Rams Head Hotel (4695 1488) or Millmerran Motel (4695 1155).
