Cunnamulla festival draws a huge crowd
IT’S the event that brings an iconic song about an outback Queensland larrikin to life.
The annual Cunnamulla Fella Festival was held at the weekend and saw crowds gather from across the region and afar to join in on the fun.
Event organiser Liz Land said in her 11 years of running the event, this year’s was the biggest one yet.
“I believe this year’s festival has been one of the best,” she said.
“I have received nothing but good feedback and everyone I’ve spoken to have said they have heard positive reports.”
The event began on Friday morning with Ergon’s smoko in the park, which Mrs Land said was well-attended.
A new event made a debut on Friday night with the rough riding. Santos’ breakfast in the park started the celebrations on Saturday and was followed by entertainment from Glen Skuthorpe, a poetry recital and a shearing and wood chopping demonstration.
Mrs Land would like to say thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors who helped out with the event.
