All roads lead to the field days

ALL ROADS lead to Paskeville for the biennial Yorke Peninsula Field Days this week.

Visitor numbers passing through the gate this morning (Tuesday) have been steady and are only expected to increase as the weather fines up for the next two days.

More than 600 exhibitors are showcasing the latest in agricultural innovation and machinery, as well as general interest wares. There are also free activities including sheepdog trials, fashion parades, guest speakers, a blacksmith showcase and vintage machinery demonstrations.

"It's a tremendous illustration of fantastic teamwork," YP Field Days president Bruce Philbey said.

"I have witnessed the team of teams putting this all together and Mother Nature has been very kind to us.

We are set for really pleasant weather with no wind over the next couple of days, and I invite everyone to come along and check out the amazing displays from our exhibitors."

French tourists Sylvie Nicollin and Marina Duret attended the field days today. They only arrived in Australia on Friday and were drawn to attend the event by their cousin, who works in the agricultural field in Adelaide.

"My father farms cereals and breeds cattle in France so we are excited to check out the agricultural industry," Sylvie said.

"Everything is so much bigger here –– the country, the machinery, this event!"

Gates to the field days are open 9am to 5pm daily. Admission is $15 per day, children under 16 are free.
