Billed as the ultimate family day out, Stroud's Brick and Rolling Pin Competition sees men bowl a brick weighing five pounds (2 and a bit kilograms), while women pitch a two and a half pound rolling pin (1.1kg).

The kids don't miss out - they get to chuck a rubber chook. and the kids get to chuck a rubber chook.

Aside from the fun and camaraderie this event provides, Stroud's Showground will be bursting with market, craft and food stalls, activities and entertainment.

There's a tug-o-war, the fast and furious post splitting and wood chop. Crafty locals will exhibit more than 60 magnificent handmade quilts - all up for critique by the people's choice award.

Young visitors will shape and squish sand like they've never done before in hands-on sand sculpting workshops throughout the day. In the dedicated children's space there will be face painting, a variety of fun games as well as the girl power antics of Hunter Heroes to keep them entertained.

The United Ford Owners Club will have an impressive collection of 150 cars on show, providing a walk down memory lane for Ford lovers.

Local Club, Rattlin' Bones will roll into town with one of the best displays of vintage tractors in the region.
