What’s On: Bangalow Billy Cart Derby

The billy carts will thunder down the main street of Bangalow this Sunday 21 May for the annual Billy Cart Derby. The community event is open to everyone and is a display of some good old fashioned fun. Billy cart categories range from traditional, home grown, professional and novelty with competitors letting their imaginations run wild. The only requirements are that all carts need to have good brakes, safe steering and weigh less than 75kg.

The event sees over 200 entries with participants ranging from kids as young as five, parents, celebrities, workplaces and local schools. Watch them brave the big hill with their wacky carts for the glory of hitting the finish line first. Races start early with thousands lining the street to watch the action unfold and closes with a street parade while there are food stalls and other attractions. This grass roots community event is put on by the Bangalow Lions Club and a perfect way to entertain the kids all day. Parking is available in the showground for anyone attending race day.

When: Sunday 21 May
Registration & Scrutineering starts at 7am. Racing starts at 9am.
Location: Main Street of Bangalow
