2014 is already looking like a jam-packed year of event goodness and it’s only January 1st!

This coming Tuesday, January 7 the excitement of the Jeep Magic Millions racing carnival thunders onto Surfers Paradise Beach with the Jeep Magic Millions Barrier Draw.

A silk-lined, on-sand marquee will be erected at the Hanlan Street Beach Volleyball Courts, where a VIP guest list of racing identities will enjoy a buffet breakfast ahead of the excitement of the crucial barrier draw.

The event will be hallmarked by a stunning display of equestrian beauty, with three thoroughbreds in full racing colours to race along a stretch of Surfers Paradise Beach to mark commencement of the draw.

The draw itself will be held on the Surfers Paradise Foreshore, just south of the marquee, with each draw announced over the PA and screened on a large outdoor monitor.

If the idea of getting dressed up in your finest silks with a fancy hat isn’t enough to make you excited, than the knowledge that there will also be a sausage sizzle and face painters should definitely be the deal sealer.


The Jeep Magic Millions Racing Carnival begins Tuesday, January 7.
