GAYN­DAH Or­ange Fes­ti­val’s Tutti Fruitti Car­ni­vale was a sweet suc­cess.

Rev­ellers turned out in huge num­bers for the Wine and Cheese Art Show on Fri­day to the Sun­day night State of Or­anges, and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

Narelle Em­mer­ton The pa­rade was just fan­tas­tic.

The Gala Fes­ti­val Day on Satur­day saw about 8000 peo­ple fill the town and en­joy Gayn­dah’s big­gest party for the year.

The crowd lined the main street for the Grand Pa­rade at noon to watch more than 40 floats and dis­plays.

Or­ange Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Narelle Em­mer­ton said the week­end was one of the best ever.

“It was all too good, it was a very suc­cess­ful week­end,” Mrs Em­mer­ton said.

Mrs Em­mer­ton said it was tough to pick out a favourite mo­ment, but the pa­rade was a high­light.

“The pa­rade was just absolutely fan­tas­tic,” she said.

“The qual­ity of the floats was so good and ev­ery­one re­ally put in a great ef­fort.”

Vis­i­tors to Gayn­dah were en­ter­tained all week­end and even the rain on Sun­day didn’t dampen spir­its too much for the fam­ily day.
