Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers keep fin­gers crossed for sunny day

South Western Times - - News -

HOP­ING for sun­shine after wet weather can­celled last year’s event, the LiveLighter Dar­danup Bull and Bar­rel Fes­ti­val is planned for Oc­to­ber 7.

The free event is themed Fire Your Imag­i­na­tion with a fo­cus on the arts and scores of ac­tiv­i­ties, stalls, ex­hi­bi­tions, and en­ter­tain­ment show­cas­ing the at­trac­tions of Dar­danup and Fer­gu­son Val­ley.

High­lights at the fes­ti­val in­clude an an­i­mal farm, goat races, a craft mar­quee, fash­ion pa­rades, photo booths, die-cast mod­els and a wear­able agri­cul­tural art com­pe­ti­tion.

Fes­ti­val chair­woman Jill Cross said the low-cost day out would al­low fam­i­lies to en­joy a ru­ral ex­pe­ri­ence with hands-on ac­tiv­i­ties and a thrilling end with the light­ing of a fire sculp­ture. She said the day re­lied on vol­un­teers, spon­sors and Dar­danup Shire Coun­cil.
