Over 400 people came from across the state and globe, including Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Goondiwindi, Dalby and Denmark, to enjoy the celebration of the 10th Moonie Yabbie Races. The yabbies were bought by syndicates to race in six races, culminating in the Dalby Rural Supplies Moonie Cup. A BYO yabbie race was a new edition to the race program and Georgia Brown’s secret training and diet regime for her yabbie paid off with a win! The day’s events (apart from yabbie racing) were very popular, including foot races, a jumping castle, giant slide, face painting, poetry and photography competitions, and a live band in the evening.
