Bushman's Carnival a fabulous weekend for the whole family

THE annual Bushman's Carnival in on again in Widgee, with campdraft and pony club events for a wide range of age groups.

Organisers have planned a fabulous weekend for the whole family on May 4 and 5 at Widgee Showgrounds.

There's plenty of parking, plus free overnight camping on the grounds and a variety of meals available from the Bushman's Kitchen.

Riders will be competing in several events with prize money and trophies to be won.

There's the novice, maiden, open, ladies and juvenile drafts, a barrel race and much, much more.

The showgrounds has a licensed bar, with meals available from the Bushman's Kitchen.

There is some great entertainment lined up for Saturday night with a calcutta for the final of the novice draft and the Bruz to get your feet stomping.

And take advantage of the Saturday trash and treasure markets across the road at the General Store where you just might find that bargain you've been searching for.
