New Year’s Day in Naseby

Every year hundreds of people, especially holidaymakers, make a beeline to Naseby’s recreation ground to enjoy a great day out at the New Year’s Family Fun Day.

The young and young-at-heart take much joy from trying old-fashioned games such as three-legged races, egg-in-the-spoon, human wheelbarrow and sack races.

The day’s entertainment starts at 1pm and also features various stalls, a big water slide, and food. If the weather is unfavourable, the day is usually postponed until the following day.

A minimal entry fee usually applies for children, with free entry for adults.
