My Dad owns a 1948 Packard and he invited us to their Packard Run today;
It finished in the church grounds at Appin;
I had never been there before, but this little town was celebrating it's Bicentenary today!
The festival was in full swing when we arrived and the weather was beautiful;
The first thing we saw were the Scarecrows;
(My Mum was disappointed you couldn't buy a raffle ticket to win one of these. Never mind that she doesn't have a farm and he would probably be found lounging by her pool!)
Then it was on to the Ticket Booth for the rides!
First, the Flying Fish and then the Giant Slides;
Then the Jumping Castle...
Then 4 more rides down the slide!
Of course, by now the girls were hungry. I ordered them two small fairy floss;
(Cotton Candy to some) What a treat!
Then it was time to look around the stalls;
I love these beautiful, bright, beaded bracelets.
Lunch was more show-food... mini-pancakes;
The weather soon got really warm, hot even.
Luckily Poppy had brought extra hats in the back of the Packard;
Not quite a sun-hat, but very cute nonetheless!
Then it was time to visit the animals in the petting zoo;
Notice I keep a safe distance from the animals!
(I admit to, at times, using my children as shields! I am a little bit scared of animals)
Then we took a walk back through the town and saw a few historic sites;
A very old motorbike;
Original Survivor Malvern
And a 1928/29 Model A Ford Tourer;
My Dad's Packard;
(My hungry child)
And here we had a picnic for a few hours and enjoyed the festival atmosphere.
The girls loved it all, especially this carnival favourite;
Inside, a magic wand and a skipping rope;
What a day! I wonder what the Packard Club are doing next weekend?
