Spring sun shines over the Whorouly fair
DUBIOUS weather resulted in a slow start for this year’s Whorouly Village Fair on Sunday, but once the sun came out, so did the crowds.
“We were slightly up on crowd numbers, with about 1500 through the gates, and we were thrilled with the day overall,” said event organiser Jennifer Garrett.
“This year we had more market stalls than previous years, including many locals and some from as far away as Melbourne.
“All praised the venue and the event, many said they would be back next year and most had a profitable day, including many local organisations.
“Our inaugural art and craft show in the Whorouly Library Hall showcased some wonderful local artists and our historic hall.
“The variety of entertainment, from belly dancers to ukulele ensembles, was again a great hit, as was the visit by the Victorian Mounted Police and the Bright Vehicle Preservation Society.
“But most of all it was a great day for the community of Whorouly – a chance to promote our wonderful village and all it has to offer, and a chance for family and friends to catch up,” Ms Garrett said.
She said many people had contributed to the success of fourth annual Whorouly Village Fair and without that support the event would not have been possible.
“Thanks to everyone who played a part, big and small, in staging this wonderful community event,” Ms Garrett added.
