Wyong Race Club's CEO, David Jewell, said the Club’s Family Raceday is getting bigger each year with more activities and entertainment for the kids, with all the rides and activities FREE.
The Club is anticipating over 100 entries for the Kids Fashion on the Field competition with over a $1500 in prizes on offer. Every child that enters Fashion on the Fields gets a goodie bag, while the winners and runners-up will receive some great prizes from Event Cinemas Tuggerah, Glenworth Valley, the Gosford Car museum and the Central Coast Mariners Football Club including jerseys and game tickets. The best dressed kids will also win their own spectacular new hats and headpieces from Fashion Eight fascinators.
