Ta­room is bustling

Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

SEPTEM­BER seems to be a busy month for the small town of Ta­room, with plenty of events keeping lo­cals busy.

Banana Shire coun­cil­lor Terri Boyce lives in Ta­room and says it’s great to see it so lively.

“There are lots of events at the mo­ment,” she said.

“We had the mu­sic fes­ti­val last week­end. The mu­sic was great and the peo­ple that didn’t go missed out on some great mu­sic.

“And there was a bowls car­ni­val on the week­end as well.”

This week­end will be even big­ger, fea­tur­ing the Ta­room Daw­son River Fes­ti­val, which co­in­cides with the art show and the Ta­room Cup.

“It is a big week­end for Ta­room, one of the big­gest events of the year other than the show,” Cr Boyce said.

“And it’s good to see a lot of lo­cals turn up and sup­port those events – a lot of time and ef­fort goes in from vol­un­teers.”

Big crowds are ex­pected for both events this week­end.

“The races will be big but not as big as the New Year’s Eve races, and the art show is a re­union for a lot of peo­ple to come home for,” Cr Boyce said.

“You know you are going to run into a lot of peo­ple, so it is a good rea­son to come back and catch up.”
