The future of the iconic Bachelor and Spinsters Balls are in jeopardy with more people in pursuit of more sedate city life it seems.
But Daly Waters is keeping the tradition alive with the Last BnS in the Territory, kicking off this Thursday.
What was once a popular event for country people searching for that special someone, B and S balls have shifted focus and are now about having fun and meeting new and old friends.
Newly taken over by the Carter family, the Last BnS in the Territory draws as many as 250 people, travelling thousands of kilometres from as far as Queensland and Victoria.
Running over the Easter weekend, the theme this year is Anything But Clothes.
And it goes with out saying, there will be a Sunday recovery breakfast, country music, jelly wrestling, wet T-shirt contests, arm wrestling, and prizes for best dressed and best campsite.
Tickets cost $155 on the day and include camping from Thursday to Sunday.
The Carter family is hopeful the Last BnS in the Territory will continue on, so there is at least one B and S ball in the Top End.
