Bush Fair a hit
By EMMA CORNFORD
AS THE green and white striped turtle hurtled over the finish line on Sunday afternoon, punters who had backed him were stoked.
Then there were those who had bought a ticket in the Cow Poo Lotto and had the somewhat dubious honour of having their square chosen by Junior, the bovine providing the entertainment.
These were just two of the attractions at the Jacaranda Bush Fair, a fundraising event for Jacaranda Queen candidate Kelly Bowling.
More than 300 people made their way to the fair to sample damper, try their hand at whip cracking and search for bargains at the white elephant stall.
"It was a great day, but I haven't had time to work out how much it raised just yet," Ms Bowling said.
"We had over 150 volunteers who were really great and did a fantastic job."
The event was held at her parents' property on Woolwich Road, South Grafton.
"It was the biggest party Woolwich Road had ever seen I think," Ms Bowling said.
