Come New Years Eve and Port Fairy Rotary gets involved in the town's annual Moyneyana Festival.  This year the Club hosted the backwards races for children in the morning and the inaugural baristas' race in the evening.
Over 60 children in four age groups had loads of fun running backwards on the cricket ground course, cheered on by families and friends.  
Having fun backwards!
The baristas' race was held as a curtain-raiser to the Moyneyana float parade.  The competitors represented various cafes and were challenged to reach the finish line while balancing two cups of coffee on a tray.
The baristas' prize was taken out by Jazmin Royal from Audley and Hall with a dead heat for second and third between Sam Wensley from the Mill Cafe and Jack Conlan representing Rebecca's Cafe.  Jazmin took out the perpetual trophy that is held by the winning cafe for one year.
