Wim­mera peo­ple can en­joy a fes­ti­val ded­i­cated to fun, fam­ily, friends and fit­ness at St Ar­naud.

The Colour­ing St Ar­naud Fes­ti­val, on Sun­day, will bring the ex­cite­ment and fun of the 2017 Stawell Colour Run to St Ar­naud for 2018.

North­ern Grampians Shire mayor Tony Driscoll said or­gan­is­ers were ex­cited to open up the colour run ex­pe­ri­ence to an­other com­mu­nity, as well as pro­vid­ing an added in­cen­tive to visit the re­gion.

Par­tic­i­pants will tackle ei­ther a two or four-kilo­me­tre course around St Ar­naud’s Lord Nel­son Park – be­ing show­ered with colour through­out the jour­ney.

Cr Driscoll said the em­pha­sis was on fun and par­tic­i­pa­tion and that peo­ple could choose to run, walk or jog the course.

“Hav­ing at­tended the 2017 event in Stawell, I’m ex­tremely pleased this event is headed to St Ar­naud in 2018,” he said.

“It truly is a fan­tas­tic day of fun for peo­ple of all ages, so I’d en­cour­age every­one to get a team to­gether or head along solo and join in the fun.

“We’re ex­tremely thank­ful to the Vic­to­rian gov­ern­ment for the fund­ing that has made it pos­si­ble for this event to take place, as well as our part­ners at East Wim­mera Health Ser­vice, NGSC Youth Ac­tion Coun­cil and St Ar­naud Net­ball Club.”
