Many Tasmanian natives would remember attending their local Christmas Carnivals growing up.
Over 100 years on, the carnivals are still going strong with this year’s series kicking off in Rosebery tomorrow morning.
Showcasing world-class cycling, running, and wood-chopping, this year’s eight events will take place across the next month, with the series finishing up in St Helens on January 18.
