COMMUNITY spirit is alive in Dungowan, with the village holding its second fair and old-machinery exhibition on Sunday.
Kootingal Motor Club president Tony McClelland said the second annual show attracted hundreds of visitors to the village and was growing every year.
"We are trying to establish an old-type village fair with old machinery," Mr McClelland said.
"We had tractors and cars, some motorbikes and rotary hoes and a little plot of ground we are allowed to use. We also had draught horses ploughing this year."
Vehicles and machinery came from across the region to go on display at the Dungowan Recreation Ground.
Mr McClelland said there were 40 tractors, seven trucks, 14 cars including a Pontiac Firebird, mid-1960s Mustang, Thunderbird, HQ Holden, Model-T Ford, mid-1920s Chevy ute, Holden Monaro and a XD Ford limousine and about 20 stationary engines.
The working dogs were also a highlight of the day.
"The day was really well-supported by everyone," Mr McClelland said.
"There were various stalls selling homemade products, and a woodworking and Meccano display.
"The catering was excellent and there was a jumping castle and face painting for the kids."
The fair and show was organised by the club, in conjunction with Dungowan community groups including the hall committee, Lions club, progress association, tennis club, working dog group, local RFS and the recreation ground trust committee.
A committee is being formed to organise next year's event, which will again be held during the long weekend in October.
