Motto: Have a plan and be prepared.
Event:


Just North of better known Gippsland towns including Loch and Korumburra on the way to Leongatha, the township of Poowong is a picturesque dairy farming area where you can truly escape the sights, sounds, smells and bustle of inner suburban living.

Rolling countryside surrounds this lively little community, rich with sports and hobby clubs and plenty of places to throw down a picnic blanket and simply enjoy the serenity.

If you've never driven through this lovely part of Victoria, the Poowong Family Fun Day is the perfect time to visit, and be sure to stop at the Sculpture Park and take a moment to admire the view.

On Sunday 24th April 2016, the Lions Club are hosting the Poowong Family Fun Day in support of the local primary school and Kids with Cancer charity.

For a nominal entry fee of $5 per person or $15 per family, there will be many free, hands-on activities.

Live music will combine with some great food, wine, beer and cider to create a true festival atmosphere.

Market stalls will feature locals selling hand-grown and hand-made produce as well as arts and crafts. Interested stallholders are welcome to enquire via the Poowong Family Fun Day Facebook page.

There will be a vintage car and motorcycle display courtesy of the Crankhandle Southern Peninsula Classic and Historic Car Club. The club boasts over 250 members who proudly display their beautifully restored veteran and vintage classic cars, motorcycles, trucks and stationary engines.

And carnival rides for the kids will round out the day perfectly.
