Current flooding and predicted rains have cancelled Wirrinya Family Picnic Day.
The Newell Highway from Forbes to West Wyalong has been closed to light vehicles as a result of water over the road.
The Bedgerabong Country Music Campout has also been cancelled.
Forbes Country Music Club say it is with sad regrets, but a decision has been made to cancel the October event for the safety of the guests, travellers and artists.
Bedgerabong is not accessible by main roads due to road closures and flooding at this present time, and with further rain forecasting more storms ahead, the October 4 – 11th event has been cancelled. A fantastic line up has been booked for the 2017 Bedgerabong Country Music Campout and the club has promised to rebook all the 2016 artists if they can make it for the 2018 Campout.
The Forbes Country Music Club would like to thank the sponsors and business owners that have been wonderful to contribute and support them during the year, plus the Men’s Shed, Central West Glaziers and MBR Clothing.
