As well as exhibitors’ stands, there will be free children’s activities, including a jumping castle, sand wizard, billy carts, trick pony and face painting. The kids will also have the opportunity to climb up and see the world from a truck cab.

The adults will be taken care of as well, with competitions including tarp rolling.

The family afternoon will wind up at 5pm, just in time for the dinner dance at 6pm where ticket holders can enjoy a three-course meal, accompanied by live music.
