Kialla’s Emerald Bank was buzzing yesterday as people from across Victoria celebrated the annual Father’s Day Heritage Rally. The annual event was run alongside the Shepparton Farmers’ Market and the Village Market. Co-organiser and Shepparton Motor Museum curator Shaun Lennard said with more than 70 stallholders at the markets and more than 30 exhibitors within the rally, it was a significant event that drew crowds. With vintage cars, trucks, tractors, machinery, live heritage demonstrations, live music and children’s entertainment, Mr Lennard said the rally provided something for everyone. ‘‘Something new this year is we’re supported by the Benalla Aviation Museum, so they’re doing a fly over in Shepparton with two of their old planes, which will then be on the ground at the Shepparton airport for people to rock over and have a look at those.’’ Mr Lennard said following the success of last year’s event, he expected to see about 3000 people visit throughout the day.

Shepparton Villages PR, communications and marketing manager Jo Breen said the exhibition was a great way to bring joy to the residents. ‘‘We are so fortunate to have volunteers like the ladies today, who have put this doll and teddy display on, so our residents can come together, enjoy the display and share each other’s company,’’ she said.

The volunteers organised games and activities for the residents to play and they were also each given a lucky ticket to go in the running to win some of the bears and dolls on display.
