DAYS 3 and 4: Our rolling guide each day to Beef Week events

BEEF Week has begun, starting with Saturday night’s ball where the crowning of the Beef Week Queen took place.

This was followed up by Beef Meets Reef in Evans Head yesterday.

Today the Country IT Busking Competition begins and the Greater Dress Up Competition is underway.

Plenty of shop fronts to admire with this year’s theme ‘Around the World’.

Tomorrow the Casino Family History Group is running a cemetery walk at the West St cemetery entitled ‘A Walk of Remembrance’ between 2pm and 4pm.
