Killarney Cup event on again

THE first weekend in February is one to mark in the diary as the Blues, Brews and Barbecues Killarney Cup comes to Allman Park once again.

A race day unlike all the others, vice-president of the Warwick Turf Club Nick Inmon encouraged everyone to come and enjoy the day.

"The idea of the day is that you make it a day you want; if you want to chill out on a deck chair and listen to some good music you can, or if you want to dress up to the nines and sip on a Ballandean sauv blanc, then you can do it that way," Mr Inmon said.

Entertainer 8 Ball Aitken will bring the blues with him, having just returned home from Nashville and currently performing at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

"Last year was our first meet of this kind, and we had a great response and we've got a few big groups coming from Brisbane and Grafton," he said.

Gates open 11am and entry is $15.
