Spring fest such bloomin’ good fun

Albany Extra - - News -

While hot air bal­loons were un­able to fly be­cause of the weather con­di­tions, more than 10,000 peo­ple en­joyed the spring fes­tiv­i­ties at Three Sixty Bloom in Cran­brook on Satur­day.

The event marked the launch of the Great South­ern Bloom Fes­ti­val, which cel­e­brates the re­gion’s wind­flow­ers and land­scapes in spring. A fleet of air­craft landed at Cran­brook’s air­field for the day, tak­ing in the patch­work land­scape of canola from the air, while he­li­copter rides were also avail­able.

At Cran­brook Oval, en­ter­tain­ment in­cluded kite-mak­ing and fly­ing, food ven­dors, wine and stalls.

The mag­i­cal day and evening were capped off with a gi­ant fire­works dis­play.
