At noon, one final batch of riders will assemble at the Showgrounds for the 15km Landcare Olympic Park Trail (the Festival's fourth and final ride) before riders from all the day's three trails meet up at the end of Bligh Street for the Grand Parade at 4:00pm. The day will be capped off with a free Tom Grady Campfire Concert at the Showgrounds featuring the Whisky Mountain Boys, a mechanical bull, jumping castle, auction and talent quest final that will run from 6:00pm until midnight.

So far this season, United have won three games and drawn one, which puts them narrowly on top of the table, while Chinchilla occupy 5th spot. The last time United played a home game the crowds were huge and if you enjoy top-level football, they'll probably be huge for this match too.
