Ready for Melon Fest Pa­rade

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

EVER wanted to step back in time? Or travel to the fu­ture? Or maybe you’re keen on pro­mot­ing your busi­ness, school, com­mu­nity group, char­ity.

Or you just want to get a group of peo­ple together to have some old-fash­ioned fun?

The fa­mous Melon Fest Street Pa­rade might be just the ticket.

Choose a time from world or Aussie his­tory (or imag­ine a time in the fu­ture), whack in a few melon ref­er­ences and away you go.

The Chin­chilla Melon Fes­ti­val Committee will be flick­ing the switch on the 2017 Melon Fest Pa­rade – The Great Big Pink Black and Green Melon Time Ma­chine – on the morn­ing of Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 18.

En­tries close the day be­fore at noon on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 17, so there’s still plenty of time to think of a theme, dec­o­rate your float and get your en­try forms into the Melon Shop – Melon Fest HQ (the old Laven­der Patch­work Shop in Chin­chilla Cen­tral).

En­try forms are avail­able in this week’s Chin­chilla News or email chin­chillamel­on­fes­ti­val @gmail.com.

Al­ter­na­tively peo­ple can drop to the Chin­chilla customer Ser­vice Cen­tre.

The Melon Shop opens on Fe­bru­ary 6 2017 and will be open for two weeks be­fore the fes­ti­val.

The Melon Fest Pa­rade is mar­shalled in Rail­way St, with the pa­rade start­ing at 10.30am on Fe­bru­ary 18.

The pa­rade will fin­ish at the in­ter­sec­tion of Heeney and Hy­pa­tia Sts.
