Goomeri Pumpkin Festival 2017

The Goomeri Pumpkin Festival has come and gone for another year! And we got to be there to celebrate.

The Festival supports the rural town of Goomeri, and shows appreciation for primary producers. Primary producers are very important to us here at Rural Aid, so we were thrilled to attend. The Great Australian Pumpkin Roll is the highlight of the festival, with over 600 Pumpkin Rollers getting involved.

Rural Aid would like to extend a big thank you to the Goomeri Pumpkin Festival Committee for inviting us along to the annual event. By all accounts it was an excellent day, and we were very well received. Rural Aid will be visiting Proston before the end of June on a Farm Rescue trip, we look forward to seeing everyone again!

Pictured above is the stall that Tracy and Charles set up early on Sunday morning in the main street of Goomeri. A former Rural Aid volunteer, Sue, even made the trip to help man the stall for the day.
