Gatton Star - - ADVERTISIN­G FEATURE / LAIDLEY SPRING FESTIVAL - — Jim Mcdon­ald

THE Lai­d­ley Spring Fes­ti­val is a high­light on Lock­yer’s so­cial cal­en­dar and is a draw­card for many vis­i­tors to Lai­d­ley from around the na­tion.

This won­der­ful event show­cases many ac­tiv­i­ties such as the Quilt and Craft Expo, Spring Or­chard Show, art and flo­ral ex­hi­bi­tions, demon­stra­tions at the Lai­d­ley Pi­o­neer Vil­lage and a street pa­rade, not to men­tion de­li­cious country culi­nary de­lights.

Vis­i­tors can walk down streets and view shop fronts, some hav­ing main­tained the 1900s fa­cade of an early vil­lage set­ting, pro­vid­ing a unique ex­am­ple of the area’s sig­nif­i­cant his­tor­i­cal value and a re­minder of the mem­ory of the pi­o­neer farm­ing fam­i­lies of the re­gion.

The Lai­d­ley Spring Fes­ti­val has grown sig­nif­i­cantly since the event’s com­mence­ment more than 25 years ago and is a great way to get city folk to the bush to ex­pe­ri­ence our great country hos­pi­tal­ity while en­joy­ing the his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of the area.

The Lai­d­ley Spring Fes­ti­val pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties for the large num­ber of vis­i­tors and com­mu­nity mem­bers to ex­pe­ri­ence the his­tory and cul­ture of the district as well as pro­vid­ing nec­es­sary so­cial and eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties for the re­gion.
