To see and do at festival
The Benalla Aviation Museum is open both weekends of the festival and is a unique display to have in a small rural city.
The museum offers a fascinating look at Australia’s military air training history on the site of a former RAAF pilot training school.
Vicky the Truck was parked up at the library offering youngsters an interactive look at why Victoria is a great state to call home.
The Devenish Community held a memorial service honouring those who served Australia in conflicts during the past 100 years — For more on that see our Remembrance Day feature on pages 17 to 21.
The opening weekend of the festival also featured a host of open gardens, the Benalla Migrant Camp: Short Film Premiere, the Game, Set, Match Tennis Tournament and much more.
The festival continues this week, finishing up this weekend.
To find out what’s on, pick up a Benalla Festival brochure from the Visitor Information Centre on Mair St, from Benalla Rural City Council or The Ensign office on Carrier St.
