What a Day at the Diggers Rest Fair

There is no doubt that the fair was a huge success and it was exactly what our town needed.

The folk at Animal Land know how to help the community by successfully running the annual fair. The idea begun when the Pincini family (of Animal Land / Rockleigh Tours) discovered that sometimes local families need help and the Lions Club were unable to run  the 2014 annual fair by themselves. Jeorgia,with no experience, took on the challenge of organising a big event with the aim of raising fund for people in need.

With energy and good will, the Pincinis, reached out to the community service groups to lend a hand. They partnered with the Lions Club and launched a massive social media advertising campaign.

It was difficult to estimate how many people came to the fair but there were easily 400 to 500 people at any given time across the day. We guess that between four to five thousand attended to have fun at a real country fair.

What a fantastic day! The fun included: a jumping castles, face painting , hot dog eating challenge, scarecrow competition, Bulla Hill Railway display, market stalls, live entertainment, car / truck / bike Show, tractor rides, art show, pony rides and Harley rides. Community groups who joined in were: the Lions Club, CFA, Scouts, Primary School, Bulla Hill Railway and the Junior Football Club.

Jeorgia Pincini said, "I was stoked at the number of people who turned out to see what our town has to offer and I am looking forward to making it an annual event."

The community service groups raised thousands of dollars to help Diggers Rest.
