IT'S on tomorrow evening, all the fun of the fair, and it's happening in the grounds of St Patrick's School at Allora, on the corner of Warwick and Arnold Sts.

St Patrick's Annual Fete starts at 5pm, with stalls aplenty including plants, the traditional bottle stall, popcorn, cakes and sweets, barbecue and a licensed bar.

There is a disco 6.30-8pm for primary school-age children, and from 8pm until late for secondary schoolers. There is a lot to entertain the younger folk with face-painting, Glo Products, a jumping castle, merry-go-round and rides on "Li'l Squirt" the fire truck. Lyn-D-Jo Boutique will feature a fashion parade, and there's a great line-up of entertainment with school performances and Allora's own Katie Dennis.

The younger generation thoroughly enjoyed Viv's Farmyard Shearing Shed and Farm Animals last year, and they're all back this year.

"The aim is to have fun while learning, bringing back memories for the mature-aged, and show the young people, close-up, the fun of farm animals," Viv said.

A reminder to those who fancy themselves as sheaf pitchers of note that the St Patrick's Fete is again hosting the Queensland Sheaf Pitching Championships.

IF you fancy a shot at the St Patrick's 2012 Queensland Sheaf Pitching titles, nominate by calling Jason Denny on 0448 612 799, or nominate on the night.
