The Helensburgh Country Fair kicks off at 10am, with the Grand Opening, featuring Rebekah Mowbray singing the National Anthem. Then be entertained by various home-grown, local singers and bands and Symbio Zoo will make an appearance too with their interactive reptile display.
Buskers will entertain you all day in Main Street. Plenty of entertainment for everyone including the kids with circus workshops, pony rides, carnival rides and stalls for some early Christmas shopping.
Perhaps, you would rather, relax and be entertained by buskers, local musicians and towards the evening after the Grand Parade, there will be plenty of activities around the town to keep you in Helensburgh just a little longer.
Join the community as we enjoy a typical country fair, as miners, footy and sports clubs, vintage cars, classic bikes and cars, march the street for a wonderful parade. In fact, I believe Helensburgh's entire community will be involved at some stage of the day.

The scouting and girl guide movement and military vehicles will be just some of the participants in the parade.
Join Metropolitan Coal Mine for a tour of the above ground facility. The above ground tour gives you a great insight and understanding of all the buildings and rabbit warren tunnels. These mine tours at present are only available at the Country Fair. Underground tours are not available. See here for a virtual tour of Metropolitan's underground working mine.
This is the major fund raising activity for Helensburgh Lions, all proceeds will go to local community projects.
