Punters will look to take home the bacon at the annual pig races on Saturday.
It’s the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Apex Club of Gunnedah, with the first race to kick off at the Courthouse Hotel from 1pm.
Six pigs will race with one race every hour. There will be plenty of other entertainment such as a live DJ playing 70s, 80s and 90s music, and jumping castles for the kids.
The event is held in the back car park of the Courthouse, with the “gates open” from 10am.
Apex’s Aylish Flannery said it is the third year they had run the races, which were inspired by the men in the group.
“They thought it was a hilarious idea and thought it would draw a crowd. The focus was to get men involved in a community event,” she said.

“The last two years have been fantastic. It’s bringing the whole family in.
“It’s definitely the biggest day that Apex has.”
Funds from the pig races will be donated to Every Gunnedah Child, with hopes of bringing the Royal Far West bus back to town. The club is also trying to get a dog park project off the ground.
