Colours shine on a rainy day

Gatton Star - - LIFE -

FOR the sec­ond year in a row, the Colours of Som­er­set Fes­ti­val brought both colour and rain to the re­gion.

De­spite the damp, the event, now its sec­ond year, drew crowds to show­case the best of the Som­er­set re­gion.

About 300 peo­ple and more than 30 stalls made their way to the Fern­vale Show­grounds on Satur­day, and Spirit of the Val­ley pres­i­dent Idell Wadley was pleased with the event.

“We had a beau­ti­ful day with much of the fes­ti­val brought in­side,” Ms Wadley said.

The day fea­tured per­for­mances from com­mu­nity groups in­clud­ing tae kwon do stu­dents, dance troupe and mu­si­cians.

There was also a heal­ing hub, with well­be­ing and health pro­fes­sion­als of­fer­ing talks on their re­spec­tive fields.

Ms Wadley said the or­gan­is­ers were con­sid­er­ing a new venue and date for this fes­ti­val.
