MORE than 1600 visitors from as far as Sydney, the Queensland border and the Hunter Valley converged on Dungowan last weekend, for the 2016 Rotary Dungowan Village Fair and Motor Show.
Convenor John Barwick said it had been the most successful fair conducted at the Dungowan Recreation Grounds since its inception, with about 70 antique tractors, 60 special cars plus trucks a 1910 steam engine and more than 100 stationary engines on display across the two days.
The Deputy Prime Minister and Member for New England Barnaby Joyce joined Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson to officially open the event on Saturday.
Chainsaw wood carving, the working draft horse and the Tractor Trek attracted plenty of attention.
The weekend was designed to be a family affair, with one of the most popular events being the 'Kids' Tractor pull. Ride-on-mowers were converted to pedal form and the further participants pedalled, the harder it became - the Deputy Prime Minister tried both the 'Kids' and the Adults Tractor pull.
