Organisers of annual Global Village Motorfest and Fair delighted with response to event's 10th anniversary at Muswellbrook Showground

ORGANISERS of the Global Village Motorfest and Fair were grinning from ear-to-ear at the Muswellbrook Showground on Sunday.

Not only did they have cause to celebrate the event's 10th anniversary, big crowds made their way to the popular Motorfest Dinner Dance at the Muswellbrook RSL Club on Saturday night, as well as the main attraction less than 24 hours later.

And, you didn't have to be an avid car enthusiast to enjoy the festivities either.

Trade and market stalls, special interest displays, a jumping castle, puppeteer show, baby animal petting zoo, musical acts, Snake Tails Reptile presentation and much more provided the entertainment, too.

"We're delighted," Upper Hunter Motoring Association's (UHMA) Colin McLean said.

"Saturday night was fantastic.

"I think everyone had a great time.

"More and more people are dressing up for the occasion - at least 80 per cent of them went to a lot of trouble.

"They're really embracing the themes we introduce each year.

"We donned hippie attire in 2018 and pirate gear at the weekend.

"As for the Global Village Motorfest and Fair on Sunday, we received well over 100 nominations for the Show 'n' Shine.

"That's pretty much on par with previous years.

"We'd just like to thank everyone - from those who attend to our many generous sponsors - for their support over the past decade.

"All the money raised, after expenses, goes to charity with a large proportion benefitting the Muswellbrook PCYC towards its Learn to Drive program and Youth Support scheme."
