Hi S. Lynn,
I am helping to run some stall this week-end at Beenleigh Showgounds on Saturday 31st May.

You are saying that 31st May is a Sunday.

Location: Beenleigh Showgrounds 38-44 James Street Beenleigh
Date: Sunday 31st May 2014
Time: 11am – 6:30pm.


Does that mean my event is on Saturday or Sunday??? as I was told to be there Saturday 31st May at the free Autumn Festival. Is your festival a different one or occurring at the same place as well, i.e. running in parallel.

Cheers,
Kenny Lynn
