We went to it today!
And it was such fun. We headed back over to Omapere to meet up with DandP again and then on to the Wild West Festival.
When you reach the village you're stopped by the sheriff who won't let you in until you give a donation to charity. If you don't you're shot. Or not.
There's gunfights, horseriding cowboys, cheese rolling (!), various stalls, and lots of food!
A lot of people are dressed up and really get into the spirit of it all.
There's even a gum boot throwing contest!
This chap was the judge.
A real life Saloon!
A mechanical bull
And right up Lloyd's street ~ CHILLIES!
It's just a morning/afternoon affair and by half past 2 it's all finished so we headed back to Omapere and the Copthorne, to sit and gaze at the view and drink wine ( or juice).
It's a fantastic day out and one I'm sure we'll do again next year.
