There is just over a month to go for the major event on the Parkes social calendar. The Parkes Picnic Races on Saturday, 12th June is set to attract many visitors to town, especially after the cancellation of the event last year because of COVID.
Fashions on the Field is the highlight of the day offering an array of prizes and prestige to the glamourous colts and fillies. The categories include: Contemporary Fashion; Elegant Lady; Stylish Man and Millinery.
The spectator area is in great condition and the venue is now one of the best in the Central West with its renovated grandstand and covered bookies rink.
The June Long Weekend has long since become a ‘Back to Parkes’ weekend, with many residents opening their homes to friends and relatives. People travel from all over NSW and interstate to come to the event.
The Quota Ladies will be looking after the food on the day in the newly renovated grandstand space. There will be full bar facilities too.
Race sponsors include the Parkes Ser-vices Club, Broadway Hotel, Agricentre, Telescope Tyres and Powertools Plus.
