At the Finish event, there is entertainment, local produce, food and wine, children’s activities and the camaraderie of participating in and celebrating this internationally renowned event. The judging of the vehicle awards takes place at the finish as well as the Fashions in the Field- where everyone has the chance to show off their finery and win great prizes.
