Romp in the fields, frolic in the hay, frock up for charity
It's the race that stops a nation! Or at the least the race that stops a town in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. What a different kind of day out in the country, all of the views, green pastures and animals but wearing your social butterfly best attire. Come along to Maleny Dairies on 5 March 2016, watch bessie and her friends race, and cash out on a cow.
The organisers ask that you come dressed in your best race outfit. This is one of the social events on the Maleny calendar for the year and will bring people from miles around to share in the fun. Note that this is an 18 event. Singles ladies take care - there might just be some hot country guys to sweep you off your feet. And city fellas, isn't it every guy's dream to meet a lovely country lass? Show off your best side in your hot race outfit and mingle throughout the afternoon. Committed couples come along for a totally out of the ordinary fantastic afternoon in the sun! See the Maleny Dairies event Facebook page for updates before the day.
