Fun to be had at Seymour expo

By Rodney Woods

Backflipping quad bikes, award-winning whip-crackers and some seriously talented kelpies – that’s just some of the entertainment on offer for young and old at the Seymour Alternative Farming Expo.

Held in Seymour’s Kings Park from Friday, February 14, to Sunday, February 16, event manager Jamie Gilbert said the 28th expo would have something for everyone, with plenty of new events to look forward to.

“This year’s expo promises to be a fantastic day out for the whole family, for animal lovers and thrillseekers alike,” Mr Gilbert said.

“We’ve added the All 4 FMX quad bike demos to the entertainment line-up, which will be absolutely enthralling for visitors of all ages.”

ALL 4 FMX rider Mitch Van Vliet said his team would be performing electrifying and nail-biting aerial tricks on motorbikes and quad bikes.

“We are the only team in Australia that has a backflipping quad-biker in our ranks,” Mr Van Vliet said.

The Seymour Alternative Farming Expo will be held at Kings Park in Seymour from February 14 to 16, with gates open from 9 am to 4 pm.
