Festival goes back to its roots
One of the most difficult festivals to pronounce, based in the Pilbara, is promising to transport people back to a time gone by this year.
Tom Price’s annual Nameless Jarndunmunha Festival will run from July 23 to mid-August.
The theme this year is Rewind, and this is evident in the number of events organisers are bringing back from the archives to celebrate the 2017 festival.
These range from the King of the Mountain, a 3km race up Mt Nameless, to the Nameless Ball, both of which are being brought back after a long hiatus.
Event organiser Kelly Geddes said the volunteers behind the festival were passionate about taking the festival back to its 1970s roots. “We are trying to honour that 1970s vibe and bring all those 1970s events back to the festival,” she said.
“I think people will come along and be truly transported — they will think they are in a time warp.
“We think the town needs this, so it is good to see them support it.”
Among other events will be a dog show with some typically Pilbara award categories, and a car show Ms Hayes said had the town buzzing.
“I’m not entirely sure when the last car show was in Tom Price but we are getting a lot of excited people about that,” she said.
“We would like to see lots of nonTom Price people here, so if you’re from Paraburdoo, Karratha, Newman, we would just love to have you.”
Tickets for the Rewind Nameless Ball are on sale now.
