Carnival atmosphere at Bowraville races | PHOTOS

IT’S AN early Christmas race meeting at Bowraville this afternoon and an enthusiastic and welcoming crowd are celebrating the occasion with family and friends.

The meeting is far removed from the frenzy of a Bowra Cup – but there’s more than enough to create an atmosphere and most were having a flutter.

As well as a swag of locals, people had travelled from as far afield as Sydney and Brisbane to enjoy the picture perfect country racecourse and renowned catering.
