THE newly-formed Ballymacelligott Vintage Club will hold its inaugural rally and family fun day, in the field adjacent to O’Riada’s Bar and Restaurant, on Sunday, September 16.

The rally will be preceded on Saturday night, September 15, from 8pm with a ‘pig on the spit’, music and dance at O’Riada’s and to provide a little nostalgia, a video of the last comparable vintage rally in the parish, in 1994, will be shown.

The action starts on Sunday from 12 noon and while the main purpose of this rally will be to provide a platform for vintage enthusiasts to display their restored rarities, it will also make for a very packed day of side shows, family fun and games.

In these times of rural isolation for many, it is hoped that people will make the effort to come along and enjoy themselves.

This year, Land Rover celebrates the 70th anniversary of the launch of its first model in England back in 1948.

A selection of these vehicles from down through the decades will feature, side by side with beautifully restored cars and tractors.

A tug-o-war pull against a Ferguson 20 tractor, is sure to make young and old laugh and little fun rides, face painting, bouncing castles and novelty events will keep the little ones amused.

A sheep-shearing demonstration will also feature. Those who fancy that their little pet dog might win a prize at the dog show, should bring him or her along.

Of course, where would one be on such a day, without a tasty burger and chips, followed by a nice ice cream, as well as the old reliable sweets and bars.

The hard working committee who organised this day, look forward to a large turnout and are pleased to state that Recovery Haven Cancer Care, in Tralee, will benefit financially from the event.
