Family fun at the fair with live music and re-enactments
Volunteers will be doing re-enactments in full period costume at the Heritage Fair at Caboolture Historical Village. It also involves bush poet, Long John Best, for two sessions at the bush pub; he is most entertaining with verse. Also on the pub verandah from 9.00 am till noon Peter Bigg and his mates will be doing a great mix of country western and then the Irish masters of jig and jug. The Blarney Stone will perform until the close of day.
Local indigenous musician, Ben Barker will be playing his unique style of music. The fantastic Kamilaroi Percherons horses will be performing throughout the day also pulling wagons and show casing their skills. John Miller of the recently retired group the UKE Dukes, will be performing near the sausage sizzle where the sausages - "Heritage Snags" - are supplied by the best butcher shop this side of the black stump: the Longyard Beef Company.

Many of the regular tourist attractions, which are local clubs, will be there with the Woodies making spinning tops, a very simple old toy, to give away on the day. And the intrepid, totally politically incorrect Bushrangers will be on the prowl so bring your cameras but beware, they love to catch people out.
There will be fun for all ages and interests, including a bric a brac auction. See the Queensland rail carriage recently delivered which is not open until the display is complete. Stock up at the new lolly shop, buy some handmade soap or gems, and so much more at the Caboolture Historical Village. There is plenty of parking or take the train from Brisbane or the Sunshine Coast and the Village can collect you in their courtesy bus.
