Dazzling day

Benalla Ensign - - Front Page - By Si­mon Rup­pert

The sun ar­rived on cue and Be­nalla was out in force to en­joy the clos­ing week­end of this year’s fes­ti­val.

The big two events on Satur­day were packed with smil­ing faces.

The Be­nalla Fes­ti­val Street Pa­rade was spec­tac­u­lar as al­ways, and at its con­clu­sion crowds headed for the Vil­lage by the Lake.

With ev­ery­thing from live mu­sic to in­ter­ac­tive shows, food, drink and much more the Vil­lage by the Lake was a well-planned and in­clu­sive event.

OzRock Ex­press had a great re­ac­tion as they kept the crowd danc­ing and singing along to some Aussie rock clas­sics.

Satur­day night con­cluded with spec­tac­u­lar fire­works. Sun­day was more re­laxed with many lo­cals and vis­i­tors en­joy­ing A Day in the Gar­dens Mar­ket.

At 10.30 am a spe­cial ser­vice was held to com­mem­o­rate 100 years since the end of World War I.
