Adding to the excitement of the races, children will be able to take part in ‘The Giddy Up Club’, an interactive kid’s race club offering pony rides, along with other free family fun, from face painting to a children’s fancy dress competition and a marching band. Art from a local school’s competition will also be displayed on the day with lots of great prizes on offer for the winners that have entered prior to the Family Day.
