The Katamatite Lions Club will be holding is second Big Day Out in a Little Town event on Sunday, October 16 and this year two bunyips have come along to play.
Beginning at 9am at the Lions Park, Katamatite kiddies can track the bunyip footprints and perhaps find a nest containing two whole eggs and one hatched egg.
Last year more than 1,000 people made their way to the small rural community of Katamatite for the inaugural Big Day Out in a Little Town and 2016 will be even bigger.
See the sculptures by the creek, listen to live music and the busking competition, meander along the 50 food and market stalls, enjoy the art, craft and photography exhibition plus look at old cars, motorcycles, trucks and tractors on display.
Federal Member for Murray Damian Drum and former Moira Shire Mayor Gary Cleveland will take turns in the dunk tank along with local police, the publican, CFA Captain, School Principal and more.
The latest drone technology will be displayed as well as filming parts of the event, try your luck in the Great Yabby Race or the Miss Katamatite competition, bid in the Mystery Auction and watch the local sprint races.
There will be a jumping castle, live local  pony rides, face painting, sheep shearing, whip cracking, SES members will be cutting up a car using the ‘jaws of life’ and there will be a visit from Mickey Mouse and Daffy Duck.
