Fes­ti­val week­end

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Jodie Dixon jodie.dixon@isistc­news.com.au

I WOULD like to start by sin­cerely apol­o­gis­ing to Jake Thompson as his story wasn’t on page18 last week.

To make up for it, the ar­ti­cle has been pub­lished on page 20. Once again, sorry Jake.

WOW! What a week­end in Childers. It was a jam-packed week­end and see­ing ev­ery­thing was tough.

With the months of plan­ning, book­ing of acts, food ven­dors and craft prod­ucts, the Childers Fes­ti­val was a great suc­cess.

The com­mu­nity of Childers should be very proud. The weather was per­fect, the crowds were en­ter­tained and the choice of food was end­less.

The pa­trons started to flow through the fes­ti­val from 7am. It was a busy day for all the staff and re­tail­ers.

I must say the best buy of the day was $1 cof­fee from the ladies at the QCWA. Well done ladies, you had many happy cus­tomers.

It was great for the fes­ti­val to have the Queens­land Gover­nor, Paul de Jersey, of­fi­cially open the fes­ti­val. The crowds gath­ered to watch his open­ing speech.

See­ing all the pa­trons en­joy the tasty treats and soak­ing up the sun – my guess was there was a lot of sun­burnt faces.

Let me know your thoughts on the fes­ti­val, what did you like the most about this year’s fes­ti­val or did you leave town for the week­end?
