Mill tour first for festival
FOR the first time in the history of the Childers Festival, the Isis Central Sugar Mill opened its gates to the public.
The successful 3.5-hour tour was experienced by 120 patrons.
The tour explained the entire process of how sugar cane is turned into sugar.
Did you know it takes seven tons of sugar cane to produce one ton of sugar?
The tour will be on the calendar for next year’s Childers Festival.
The crowd was thrilled with the tour and mostly the roaring blaze of the cane burn.
Next year Isis Central Sugar Mill will again entertain and educate the community about the sugar industry and what it does for the region.
It was a brilliant start to the Childers Festival.
REAPING THE BENEFITS: The Isis Central Sugar Mill tour highlighted the importance of the sugar industry to the region.
