Sunday kicks off at 11.00am when the stalls will open. At 11.30am the procession with the fancy dress contestants, vintage car and guests will arrive on the green to perform the official opening ceremony. This is followed by judging of the Fancy Dress competition and the very contentious Challenge Barrel race between the Crown and the White Horse. This year we have introduced a new race. The Jack and Jill Barrel Race in memory of our Town Crier, Jim Homersham. This will be between couples with the lady rolling the barrel down the hill and the gentleman upwards.
During the day Rumburgh Morris Dancers, Random Blues band, Laurence French and Punch & Judy will be providing entertainment
Food stalls, BBQ, Craft Stalls, Children's games, Donkies, Laser Chamber and more will be spread around the green with children's races and of course more barrel racing will be held.
