Fun days this week at Woodlands!

The Pioneer Fundays are back this week at Woodlands Estate in Gordonton.

The three days of family fun are an extravaganza of 19th Century delights and goings-on, featuring pony rides, vintage machinery, old fashioned games of skills and even sack races. Sam and his Backyard Friends will be there, as will Lord and Lady Black with their Victorian-themed games.

The event runs from the 6th, 7th and 8th of October, 10am to 2pm.  $2 entry fee per person.

 

We share some pics from Pioneer Fundays of the past –

    Reminiscent of good old England. But, you wouldn’t know of that any of you.
    Never mind.
