RE­MEM­BER WHEN

Central and North Burnett Times - - OVER 50s -

FIRST QUEEN: In 1957 Mar­garet Yappa was the First Gayn­dah Or­ange Fes­ti­val Queen. She trav­elled in style atop a dec­o­rated boat in the Grand Pa­rade, down Cap­per St. The Or­ange Fes­ti­val tra­di­tion has been go­ing strong ever since Mar­garet wore the crown all those years ago. The out­fits have changed, the floats are no doubt a lot safer, but the Or­ange Fes­ti­val Queen is still a cov­eted and re­spected po­si­tion.
