Gover­nor to open fes­ti­val

Isis Town and Country - - News -

QUEENS­LAND Gover­nor Paul de Jersey will of­fi­cially open Sun­day’s Childers Fes­ti­val, mark­ing the 20th an­niver­sary of the pop­u­lar event.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil’s com­mu­nity ser­vices spokes­woman Judy Peters said the an­niver­sary was a re­mark­able mile­stone in the history of an event that had grown from hum­ble begin­nings.

“It is ex­cit­ing that the Gover­nor has been able to find the time to at­tend this im­por­tant oc­ca­sion and it is a tes­ta­ment to the drive of the peo­ple of the Childers com­mu­nity and the man­ner in which they have worked to grow this event,” Cr Peters said.

Cr Peters said a great ini­tia­tive this year was the brand­ing of lo­cal stalls to help cus­tomers in iden­ti­fy­ing the Childers stall hold­ers at the fes­ti­val. Cr Peters said the pro­gram of en­ter­tain­ment and the 350 stalls and food op­tions would en­sure the 20th an­niver­sary of the Childers Fes­ti­val would be mem­o­rable.
