But while the event con­ve­niently co­in­cides with the Blos­som Fes­ti­val, the Town Cri­ers have im­por­tant work to do while they are in Alexan­dra.

This in­cludes com­pe­ti­tions in the Alexan­dra Catholic Church, Roxburgh Theatre and Cromwell Pres­by­te­rian Church over a week.

In be­tween times, they will also at­tend a may­oral re­cep­tion, as well as mak­ing vis­its to schools, rest homes and Man­iototo.
