Where you can see pigs fly ... around a course

YOU can bet your donation you might see pigs fly at the Gundy Pub this weekend.

Hotel owner Dan Hourigan said he had started pig and toad races a few years ago and recently decided to bring them due to popular demand.

"It was very popular back then and I have been constantly asked about them," he said.

"I have the pigs in the back right now and will be preparing their track tomorrow.

"At the end of the track will be their food and I will be feeding them throughout the morning so they know exactly where the end is.

"It will be a fight and charge through a 100metre obstacle course which will include a half circle, straight, ladders and bales of hay."

You can have yourself a little betting donation on a 10-week-old piglet who will fight and charge its way through the obstacle course.

All monies raised go to the Gundiah School and the Gundiah Community Hall opposite the hotel.

The Gundy Pub Pig Races will kick off at noon on Saturday, April 14 with races starting around 2pm.

There are also toad races, raffles, lucky door, prizes, live entertainment, jumping castle, camping and a courtesy bus.

For more information visit the Gundy Pub and Caravan Park at 10 Main St, Gundiah or phone 4129 3182.
