Day 3 THE DAY OF THE PUMPKIN

Up at 7.30 thanks to the town crier using the loud speaker VERY loudly !! After a short walk we were amazed at the amount of stalls (we were told unofficially 250 !) selling all sorts of wares .First stop was the Food Hall ( methinks its original use is a barn) we had sausage n egg balm cake and  cup of tea to warm us up & then a stroll thru all the markets,Children were in heaven there was Camel rides,Whip Cracking competition for old and young,Pig Racing (very funny) and a Puppet Show which was pretty bad BUT the kids loved it.Annie had to weigh her Pumpkin (previously bought the night before) in readiness for the downhill Pumpkin Race the days Highlight.At this point we met up with friends from Hervey Bay David n Margaret.My feet were beginning to ache , so we decided Coffee n Chips would be the cure.Annie was now in fine form and headed off to the top of Policeman’s Hill in readiness for the Big Pumpkin Race (apparently 800 competitors) Juniors were first off at 2pm with all contestants having rolled 800 Pumpkins down the Hill.Sadly Annie didn,t do well and after this event we said goodbye to Margaret & David as they headed back to HB whilst we walked around a few more  markets with Annie spending lots 0n clothing etc ( I bought nothing !) Back at the campsite we had a lengthy chat with our neighbours and after a beer or few Bruce & partner set off home (we will be doing the same tomorrow) The stay has been great (although very cold at night) and we can now say “We have attended Goomeri Pumpkin Day !”
