The Parkes Harness Racing Australia Day event is a fantastic day not to be missed, a great afternoon out for both the young and older folk. There is a full 6 pace TAB program, face painting for the kids, and the famous Australia Day Yabby Races! Meet the Australia Day Ambassador and celebrate Australia Day the 'Aussie' Way - watch the horses race and bring along your own yabby for the Golden Yabby races under the shade on evening of Australia Day with a cool beverage and hamburger in hand.
Bring your kite (or come on up and buy one!) and join us at Northparkes Oval from 8am to 11am on Australia day to be part of the fabulous Parkes kite festival!
