Townsville Billy Cart Dash for Variety
The Townsville Billy Cart Dash for Variety will be held at Jezzine Barracks, Kissing Point, North Ward.
The annual Townsville Billy Cart Dash raises money for Variety - the Children's Charity of Queensland, a national non-profit organisation supporting kids who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs.
To date, they have raised more than AUD50,000 for Variety, and look forward to continuing to raise funds for such a worthwhile charity while providing a fantastic community event.
This event, now in its sixth year, has proved a huge success, with teams entering every type of billy cart you can imagine, from the old-fashioned wood and rope soap-box style through to sleek welded machines complete with air brakes, parachutes, air horns and sub-woofers.
They get some amazing cart designs, from dinosaurs to pirate ships to outdoor dunnies on wheels!
Enter your own cart this year, and come down for a fantastic family day out, with billy cart racing, a fun obstacle course, face painting, balloon artists, food stalls, a jumping castle and an outside broadcast with 4TO radio personality and V8 race-caller Minty.
