This year sees the return of one of our most popular acts – Airtime FMX Motocross – who promise to provide us with all the noise and excitement we can take. They will be making three appearances – Friday lunchtime, Friday night and Saturday lunchtime………… So be sure to not miss this opportunity.

You will see what the fish actually sees from underwater without having to get wet.

Word on the street is that the Dinosaurs are Back …………. So, beware these crafty critters will be roaming the showgrounds – you just do not know when or where they will appear ………….
