The Cowaramup Retailers Association and Lions Club will host a “Mooving In Day” on Sunday to celebrate the materialisation of an 11-month dream to have the town’s central strip lined with plastic cows.

Association president Jill Turton said she hoped the herd, which was the brainchild of Lorraine Teasdale, would lift the profile of the town and attract more visitors.

“We want more focus on Cowaramup and think the cows will build a strong community spirit,” Ms Turton said.

“We want them to bring a smile to the people passing through and encourage them to stop by and see what Cowaramup has to offer.”

The celebration would be held at the Cowaramup Hall and include market stalls, live music from Dave Seegar and activities for a variety of ages, Ms Turton said.

Cheese and soap-making, silk painting, woodcarving, glass bead creating and other art demonstrations would feature, along with food stalls, a gum boot-tossing competition and children’s entertainment.

Revellers could also take part in a cow rally, which involved visiting local businesses who would supply answers to a day-long quiz to be held during the event.

The Mooving In Day kicks off at 10am and finishes at 3pm.
