A major feature of our program are the annual ferret races; this involves the ferrets being placed in a specially constructed course in which the ferret has the ability to see daylight in sections, manoeuvre over different surfaces and even turn around, with the first ferret to fully emerge from the course at the other end being the winner.
There are quite some anxious moments when the ferret starts to emerge, the crowd roars with delight and the ferret promptly retreats back into the course.
There are also the delightful ferret fashion parade and ferret ‘chocolate wheel’ in which visitors and participants can win great prizes.
