Competitions on the Town Square:

 

SPUD CART DERBY

Hey, kids - start your engines! Convert a Spud to a Car, with wheels, stickers, toothpick flags and any other decorations you like. Add a driver or just some speed-demon stripes - it's up to you. A "Show & Shine" table will display the carts, in the Town Square Rotunda, for public voting on their favourites, so bring your car along early. We may even have a race in afternoon!

Bring your Cars to the Town Square by 11am on Spudfest Day!

 

SPOT THE SPUD

Did you know that there will be 24 varieties of Spud available for sale at Spud Alley on Quarry Street Reserve? You can test your knowledge of all things Spud, by visiting the display in the Town Square Rotunda and filling in the quiz. All correct entries will go in the draw for a fabulous Spudly prize.

Check out the beautiful Blue Vintage ute and guess the number of spuds in the back. 200 numbers for sale - only one of them is the right one! Tickets $5 - prize is $200 cash! How good is your eye?
