FinCity event set to siz­zle

Southern Riverina news - - FRONT PAGE - By James Ben­nett

Fin­ley’s next big event, FinCity Food and Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, will be held for the first time this Satur­day.

Fea­tur­ing a host of lo­cal and re­gional mu­si­cians, mouth­wa­ter­ing food and drinks and the famed Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar­ket, the in­au­gu­ral fes­ti­val will be held at Fin­ley’s Rail­way Park in En­deav­our St.

The event is the brain­child of the Finely for the Fu­ture Com­mit­tee — a sub-com­mit­tee of the Fin­ley Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try.

Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar­ket Com­mit­tee mem­ber and Ber­ri­gan Shire Mayor Matt Han­nan said as well as be­ing a great chance to bring the com­mu­nity and its vis­i­tors to­gether, the eco­nomic ben­e­fit of the event will be pos­i­tive.

‘‘We can hope­fully at­tract peo­ple from the sur­round­ing towns, and that can only be good for the com­mu­nity,’’ he said..

‘‘Fin­ley has a lot of events on the cal­en­der such as the B ‘n’ S ball, trac­tor pull, rodeo, mon­ster garage sale week­end and the Fin­ley Show — Fin­ley has al­ways been an events based com­mu­nity and this is an­other one to add to the list.

Chris Shaw and Shaun Kable from Ash­ley Haynes Butch­ery will be help­ing other busi­nesses and com­mu­nity groups to feed FinCity guests this week­end.
