A highlight on the Parkes social calendar takes place tomorrow when the annual Parkes Picnic Races make a fashionable return from 11:30am at the Parkes Racecourse.
This year’s Fashions on the Field guest judge is Anna Barwick, a former Peak Hill local. Anna is a pharmacist, academic, PhD student, mum of two, fashionista and Miss Royal Easter Showgirl in 2008. She is also a keen Fashion on the Field entrant at country race meets, and has won the Lady of the Day at Tamworth Cup in 2017 and 2018, Armidale Cup, Guyra Cup, Walcha Cup, Tomingley and Mungery.
Parkes Picnic Races is a regular outing on her calendar. Known on Instagram as the ‘Phashionable Pharmacist’, Anna appreciates classic and cutting edge looks, while reflecting the seasonal racewear guidelines. This year at Parkes Picnic Races, her attention will be drawn to unique and superbly finished style.
The day also includes a five-race program, including the Coradgery Cup, as well as full TAB and betting facilities, canteen and bar services, a coffee van, and live entertainment by Trundle band Geroholom Johnson.
Entry is free for under 16-year-olds, and $20 adult general admission tickets are available at the gate on the day. For more details, visit parkespicnicraces.com.au.
