A NEW umbrella has been created to boost Euroa’s busy calendar of events in the spring.
The Euroa Spring Festival is the cooperative marketing body for the Australian National Euroa Show and Shine, the Euroa Agricultural Show, Wool Week, the Strath-Boogie Music Festival, the Harvest Table, the Euroa Cup and the Strathbogie Butterfly Festival.
The brainchild of local resident Tom Boocock, as well as Janet Fogarty, Tess Noonan-Egan and Shirley Saywell, the festival banner aims to maximise publicity for the many events that showcase Euroa and its surrounding districts throughout October and November.
The festival concept was announced at the fifth Euroa Business Breakfast held at the Flour Mill last Thursday, with committee members asking for suggestions and feedback on the ideas they have for one of the year’s busiest times for the town.
Suggestions include using Binney Street for outdoor dining with both food and beverages, however, the committee is still exploring opportunities to introduce this.
Both Mr Boocock and coordinating chairperson of Wool Week Neville Mawson confirmed the street parade, to be held this year on Saturday, November 1, would be happening as a major draw card for families and children.
