The village of Bowning was abuzz with activity over the weekend, and full of locals dressing up in traditional garb, then building and painting replicas of old buildings from colonial Australian times.
The reason for this old-fashioned construction is simple: the cafe is gearing up for the annual CanAssist Yass Valley Branch Country Fair, which is coming up again this Sunday, November 19.
The country fair will raise funds by producing live entertainment, market stalls, blacksmithing, furniture making displays, and hosting a petting zoo, among other attractions.
The entry fee is by a gold coin donation, and all proceeds from the event will go to CanAssist.
The country fair is on this Sunday and will open at 8.30am, and will close at 4pm. For more, see the CanAssist Yass Valley Branch Country Fair Facebook page.
