Enjoy fun at Teven-Tintenbar fair

THIS year's Teven-Tintenbar Country Fair will mark two decades since the fair was first formed to raise funds for Teven Tintenbar Public School.

Organiser Wayne Shepherd said people can expect a few new features this year, with more male-friendly activities available.

"If you like cars and motorbikes, then you are going to love our display," he said.

"We've had great support from local car and bike clubs, and in addition to Harley Davidsons, we will have vintage motorbikes, a display from Ballina Yamaha, plus hot rods, show cars and vintage cars.

"We're also really excited to host a pass-the-ball competition courtesy of the NRL Titans. This is a really fun addition to our program, and we are hoping that everyone in attendance will be able to join in."

All the regular stalls will still be around offering plants, new and pre-loved clothing, bric a brac, books and toys, cakes and slices, jams and pickles, flowers and farm-fresh produce.

For kids, there's sideshow alley, minecraft zone, monster craft zone, treasure hunts, hair spraying, nail painting and face painting.

Live entertainment includes 'T Factor' - a talent quest of Teven-Tintenbar students, Sing Australia Ballina. Ballina Tae Kwon Do and the LTTS junior and senior bands.

Teven-Tintenbar school Principal Ginny Latta said the fair was a good opportunity for parents of pre-schoolers, who haven't chosen a school yet, to come and see what the school is all about.
