Mullewa Events Heat up the Winter

As the cool winter weather continues Mullewa will heat up the region with two of the region’s largest events this month - the Polocrosse Carnival and Agricultural Show.

The fun begins with the 20th Annual Mullewa Polocrosse Carnival 22-23 August at the Mullewa Polocrosse grounds where spectators are welcome to attend free of charge.

The tournament which is held every year in August features competitors from other Mid West zone clubs battling it out for top honours. Saturday night entertainment provided by Micky Mullet and the Moresby Rangers.

The Mullewa Agricultural Show on 29-30 August, which isn’t just about agriculture, features new events and activities for the whole family this year including a monster truck demo, side show alley rides, camel rides and the 10th Lighthorse Display in recognition of 100 Years of ANZAC.

With $5000 up in prizes for The Mullewa Gift – the richest footrace in regional WA and another $5000 the Mullewa Quick Shear competition is sure to be tense.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor, Ian Carpenter, said more than 1600 people attended last year’s Ag Show and took in some of the more traditional sights and activities.

“Last year visitors enjoyed the various pavilion competitions, machinery displays – both old and new – shopped at stalls in the market place and finished off the day watching a fireworks display after the sun went down.”

The Mullewa Wildflower show also falls on the same weekend and the whole town will be alive with tours of historical buildings, the wildflower walk and drive trails and the Women’s Art Centre will also be open showcasing a wide range of Aboriginal Art.

“Mullewa is rolling out the welcome mat in the coming weeks and I encourage people to visit the town and enjoy the fabulous events and activities that aren’t available in the City.  I look forward to seeing you there,” said Mayor Carpenter.
