Kyabram's big weekend offered plenty of entertainment.March 19, 2014 4:46am
Members of the David Brown Tractor Club of Australia attended the 16th Kyabram Vintage Engine and Machinery Rally.
The big March weekend again provided a boost to Kyabram’s economy, bringing large numbers of visitors into the town.
Kyabram’s first ever A Day Beneath the Gums was a great success on Sunday with about 450 people attending, including some from as far as Adelaide.
The crowd enjoyed a relaxed afternoon of music, food, beer and wine behind the Wilf Cox Complex, organised by local charity foundation The Kyabram Gift and Kyabram Football Netball Club.
Kyabram Gift chairwoman Liz Dillon said the day was an excellent first-up effort.
There was a steady stream of people heading into Kyabram Showgrounds throughout the weekend for the 16th Kyabram Vintage Engine and Machinery Rally and the 2nd International Mack Muster.
Organisers of both events were pleased with the number of exhibitors and enthusiasts who supported the weekend.
It was the first time the International Mack Muster had been at Kyabram and organiser David Willis said yesterday he hoped to bring the event back again when it is next run in 2016.
‘‘We had trucks come from as far as Queensland, Tasmania and South Australia and everyone had a good time,’’ he said.
The MEOFF committee’s Kyabram Charity Poker Run did not appear to be affected by some adverse weather on Saturday afternoon.
Many of those who had travelled to Kyabram for the ride arrived early and had a look around the engine rally and Mack muster before heading down to the start of their ride.
About 300 motorcyclists set off from Memorial Gardens and later enjoyed an after-ride party with live music at Kyabram Angling Club on Saturday evening.
St Augustine’s College and Parish Fete provided a good evening of family fun on Friday and another good crowd gathered at Kyvalley Tennis Club on Sunday morning to see the club’s centenary plaque unveiled and a hit of tennis between some of the club’s legends.
