The Forbes Spring Races have become a prominent feature on the Forbes social calendar. The new date is Saturday, 19th November and the event has been rebranded to Spring Flood Recovery Cup. Tying in with the rebranded theme, The Fashions on the Field has a unique category this year: Fashion in Flood for 16 and over with a minimum winners pool of $500 cash. Forbes Services Memorial Club is the major sponsor with strong support from many other local businesses resulting in a huge pool of cash and prizes on offer. This is a fantastic opportunity for contestants to give
their imagination, creativity and individuality free reign!
Other categories include the very popular Most Elegant Lady and Cutting Edge for women, Best Dressed Gent, as well as the fun Junior (8-14) and Tiny Tot (3-6) categories. Judging criteria applies to all categories. Participants can pre-register at Little Extras Lifestyle or sign up on the day at the Fashions on the Field tent from 1.00pm. First preliminary judging will commence at 2pm. If fashion is not your passion, the day has lots to offer: live entertainment by Emily Pavey, face painting and jumping castle for the kids, a sand bag challenge and gumboot toss, and of course strong racing field for those who fancy a flutter.
You can also book a private marquee to get together with friends or colleagues to celebrate the end of sporting season, an early Christmas party, or any other excuse will do. Or you can bring a picnic and rug to relax on the grass areas.
