ORANGE FEST ON ONCE AGAIN
Parade day, citrus games in Gayndah this weekend
FESTIVITIES for the 2017 Gayndah Orange Festival continue this weekend.
Entries in the Orange Sculpture Competition will be on display at the wine and cheese evening on Friday night.
Tickets to the event, which starts at 6.30pm at the Gayndah Town Hall, are $25 at the door.
The parade is the centrepiece of the festival’s Grand Parade Day on Saturday.
Expect to see a wide variety of floats heading down Meson St from 11.30am.
Following the parade there will be plenty of entertainment, from magicians to top-notch musicians like X-Factor contestant Caitlyn Shadbolt.
For the young ones, Cilla Slack will delight with her Blue Gum Farm Show.
The fun will continue on Sunday with a range of citrus-related activities and competitions.
Competitors can try their hand at orange throwing, citrus eating, citrus packing and heaps more at Anzac Park.
There will also be plenty of market and food stalls.
The festival kicked off last weekend with the Gala Ball, where the Orange Festival Queen and Charity Queen were crowned.
