Tractor Tattoo is now in top gear and speeding into Kingaroy for the big festival spectacular on Saturday afternoon.

The action will get underway at the Glendon Street forecourt from 4:00pm until around 8:00pm.

There’ll be exhibitions, entertainment and children’s activities which will continue through until 6:00pm when local performers take to the stage.

At 7:00pm, the winners of the “Gathering Of The Tractors” tractor cut-out competition will be announced.

And then there’ll be the unveiling of the Festival’s centrepiece: a musical tractor.

There’s also heaps of things happening in the Kingaroy Library, including a photographic exhibition by the Murgon Camera Club.

Families all over the South Burnett are getting in the mood for Tractor Tattoo!

Cloyna State School recently held a “decorated mailbox” competition as a school fundraiser so the Gray and Keighley families at 49-52 Smiths Road, Tablelands, naturally did up their’s like a tractor. See the “Before” and “After” photos:
