Tom Price young­ster Sum­mer Ste­wart gets her high-vis on for the 2016 Name­less Jarn­dun­munha Fes­ti­val float parade over the week­end. Thou­sands of lo­cals and visi­tors cel­e­brated our “Ore-some” Pil­bara.

The Tom Price town cen­tre came alive with ac­tiv­ity over the week­end as thou­sands of peo­ple at­tended this year’s Name­less Jarn­dun­munha Fes­ti­val.

In its 45th year, the 2016 Name­less Fes­ti­val cel­e­brated our “Ore­some” Pil­bara with two days of en­ter­tain­ment, a float parade, mar­ket stalls, fam­ily fun, ex­hi­bi­tions and fire­works.

High­lights in­cluded the Air­ing of the Quilts art ex­hi­bi­tion and awards, live mu­sic by the Box Party Band, Mik Maks and Para­pher­nailia, and the Satur­day night fire­works dis­play.

Tom Price Pri­mary School’s float won the best in show for its im­pres­sive dis­play.
