A Kurow community venture was such a hit the first time around that it’s on again.

Show Us Your Toys @Kurow & Community Fete Fun Day takes place at the Kurow Racecourse from 10am tomorrow.

It is run by the Kurow Kruisers Car Club as a vehicle exhibition and family day out, raising funds for three Waitaki Valley causes: Kurow Trails, Kurow JAB (junior rugby), and Paterson’s Cottage.

The organisers said hundreds of people attended the inaugural day last year.

“This year, to extend the fun for young and old, you can enter the tyre-changing competition, lawn-mower racing, or kids’ box cart derby.”

The JAB group is hosting pony rides and a bouncy castle to boost its coffers for the 2018 season.

Other attractions include rides on a vintage fire engine, helicopter flights, stalls, and foods and beverages.

“Bring along your vehicle to exhibit on the day and get your friends to vote for you,” the organisers said.

The entry fee is $15 for a car, motorbike, truck, tractor, boat, or plane. Several prizes are on offer.

The public entry fee is a gold coin.

Kurow Kruisers Car Club president Kerry Morland said he was grateful to the dozens of sponsors who had contributed to the day.

“Bundle the family into the car and head up the Waitaki Valley to Kurow on Saturday for a fun-filled day,” the organisers said.
