THE Gayn­dah Or­ange Fes­ti­val Queen will be crowned on Satur­day night.

The Gala Ball kicks off the week of cel­e­bra­tions.

Thou­sands of rev­ellers en­joy the ac­tiv­i­ties and events of the fa­mous fes­ti­val.

Fes­ti­val pres­i­dent Nar­relle Em­mer­ton said things would kick into gear when the Queen was crowned.

“The Gala Ball will be a night of glitz and glam­our, es­pe­cially when ev­ery­one sees the dec­o­ra­tions in the hall,” she said.

“Each girl will be pre­sented and will have a quick in­ter­view with our com­peres, Phil and Jo Dowling.”

The Miss Per­son­al­ity will be awarded first, cho­sen by the Or­ange Fes­ti­val Queen en­trants.

As well as the Or­ange Fes­ti­val Queen, a run­ner-up and Char­ity Queen will be an­nounced.

Af­ter the for­mal­i­ties the party starts, with en­ter­tain­ment by Trace.

Mrs Em­mer­ton said the theme was tutti fruity car­ni­vale, and ev­ery­one should get into the spirit.

“We en­cour­age peo­ple to dress up in bright colours and have fun,” she said.
