Mystery Creek Field Days

Approaching the Entrance of the Field Days

Approaching the Entrance of the Field Days

Every year just South of Hamilton is Mystery Creek that holds the National Field Days.  Your able to from a tractor, combine harvester, helicopter right through to cosmetics, home & living – indoor & outdoor to crafts, hobbies and best of all for a very sweet toothed Jack, lollies!  Also, including various kinds of animals to pat like alpacas and cattle.  It is an annual event in our family since we were teeny-tots.

I donned my moonboot and set off to Mum & Dad’s to ride in Dad’s car with Gael, Dad and Jack.  Driving down the hill into the event was brilliant as we had a disability card and were able to park real close to it all.  Up on the road there are 4 – 5 paddocks of the local farmer nearby for all the cars that hold around 35 – 40,000 cars or less as well as a site for camper vans.

Countries from all over the world of all kinds of agricultural business and more come here showing their latest products of various brands.

Arriving around 10am we set off into the 1000’s of people Dad went one way and Gael, Jack and I went the other towards the crafts, toys that Jack had eyes way bigger than his wallet but did a deal with Gael on some animal hats lol  Gael and I were more interested in the home and living displays.

Walking all day on this moonboot was hideous by 2pm and I really had enough of this exhausting boot.  By 3.30 it was time to head home with Jack demanding a bag of donuts lol and he really wanted a bucket of 36 but with good negotiation skills Gael convinced him 16 donuts were quite enough with a stern word to share between me & Dad lol What an exhausting but fun packed day we had!  If you look at this picture above right, at the bottom of this photo is
