SPRING has sprung, the sun is shin­ing and the school hol­i­days are in full swing.

It’s an ac­tion-packed time of the year – there’s no short­age of things to do for rev­ellers in the North Bur­nett look­ing for a fun day out with the fam­ily.

This week­end fea­tured an­other suc­cess­ful edi­tion of the Monto Dairy Fes­ti­val.

The de­ci­sion to move the date to Septem­ber proved a good one, help­ing to at­tract plenty of hol­i­day­mak­ers from nearby Ca­nia Gorge Na­tional Park.

But the few big events that re­main can’t rely on the at­ten­dance of tourists.

With the 2018 rac­ing car­ni­val due to kick off in Eidsvold this week­end, it’s im­por­tant to recog­nise that these events sur­vive on the sup­port of the com­mu­nity.

The Bur­nett race clubs know how to put on a show and every­one is en­cour­aged to get out, have a good time and sup­port their town this Spring Car­ni­val.
