Beef Week festivities
Beef Week celebrations in Casino are well underway and at last Saturday’s opening dinner, local girl Amy Morton was crowned Casino Beef Week Queen 2010. As a qualified butcher at the Northern Co-operative Meat Company, Amy knows a thing or two about beef and she said she entered the contest to represent the Angus beef breed, believing Angus to be one of the most popular breeds.
Festival celebrations will continue until next Tuesday, June 2, with a big weekend of festivities still coming up, including the Beef Week Festival Parade beginning at 1.45pm on Saturday, May 29.
This Friday morning, May 28, you can go along to the butchers breakfast, play cow pat lotto, see the cow milking competition followed by an afternoon of bush poetry and train rides.
Saturday’s highlights include led steer judging and live country music, with the Beef Week Rodeo bucking off at 5.30pm at the Casino showground.
Sunday is Metgasco Family Fun Day with amusements, rides and you can also meet TV personality Dr Harry. For more info and full program details, check out the website www.casinobeefweek.com.au.
