Goondiwindi Local News – 6 April 2017

Picnic Races

On Saturday at 12noon the gates will open for the 2017 Picnic Races.

Tickets are $20 each which includes the evening’s entertainment. Under 18’s are free, but won’t be able to stay late.

Courtesy Buses will be running around town so you don’t need to worry about the car sleeping over at the track. The buses will be doing circuits of the motels and pubs every half an hour from 12pm to 3pm.

They’ll then be doing the reverse, dropping people back in town at various locations from 6pm through to 2am.

Tickets are sold at the gate, so get your fascinators ready, suit up, and have a good day at the races.

More details are available on their own website.
