December 6, 2012 4:12am

Cate-Lyn Godden-Cannard, Caitlin Paul, Harry Sides, Alex Rogers, Lillianne Jansen, James Nevinson and Charlie Waters are all excited about the fete this weekend.

The St Michael’s School will hold its fete this Saturday, December 8 from 10am.

And it is an event not to be missed.

The day will boast a huge range of activities for the whole family to enjoy, and will be held at the school in Harrison St, Deniliquin.

Not only is the day known for its food and stalls, but also the entertainment - everybody knows that it’s the rides that really make an event like a school fete.

At Saturday’s fete, toddlers will have their own specific area boasting an array of play equipment.

New to this year’s annual event will be pony rides, and don’t miss your chance to ride an all-time favourite — the Rotary Train.

For the older kids, there’ll be a laser zone as well as mini go-karts and the giant slide.

And for the less adventurous there’s face painting, hair spray and fake tattoos.

In addition to all this, local emergency services personnel will be on hand so you can inspect a fire truck, ambulance and police car up close.

Some lucky guests may even get a chance to test the sirens.

On top of all this, there will be plenty of activities for the whole family to get involved in.

The reptile show is visiting this year with snakes, lizards and maybe even a crocodile.

It is free and starts at 11am.

Meanwhile, the pet show is known to attract a huge range of different animals.

It will include categories such as the smallest and largest pet, best trick, best coat, pet that looks most like its owner and most unusual pet.

There will be no hoofed animals, and pets must be on leashes or in cages at all times.

It will begin at 12pm and is sponsored by Deniliquin Veterinary Clinic.

The fete will also include a dog jump, which this year features two categories of small to medium and medium to large dogs.

The dog jump is sponsored by Browns Rural Supplies.


Fete goers will also have the opportunity to take part in the yabby race.

All you have to do is purchase your own nipper and cross your fingers that it steps over the finish line first.

The trash and treasure stall will be running and there will be lucky dips available also.

Another popular event is ‘cow pat lotto’, which will see the winner take home either $250 or $500, depending on how many tickets are sold.

Simply purchase a ticket and await fate to see where the cow will ‘go’.

Tickets are available from the school office before the fete, and on the day.

A raffle will also be run in which winners can choose either a $200 IGA voucher, a $200 Wired Entertainment voucher or a Christmas stocking filled with an array of goods.

So for a fun-filled family day, head to the fete this Saturday.

The fun starts at 10am, and will finish about 2pm.
