The East Gippsland Field Days are extremely popular here in Gippsland. It is a chance for the local agricultural businesses and retail traders to show their wares. The local schools also play a large part in the field days using the day to raise some funds for their respective schools. We haven’t been to the Field Days for a couple of years. The last time we went, 2010, our grandson was only a little one and we took him for the day. He seemed to enjoy himself.
This year we were hoping to find a set of metal tongs for our fire. You can buy fireside tools in a set but we just wanted a pair of tongs. Even thought there were many tool displays and wood-burning stove stalls we were not able to find any tongs. Despite that we had an enjoyable day and the weather was just right.
