EARLY rain did nothing to dampen spirits at the revamped Wool Week Festival on Saturday with hundreds of people enjoying the Pop Up Park in Binney Street.

People wandered the street enjoying everything from art sculptures to BMX displays and a three course long lunch.

One of the organisers behind the event, Shirley Saywell, said all the hard work by the committee had paid off.

“Binney Street was transformed, thanks to all those who were there at 5am to set up. And to those who were still there at 10pm to pack up,” Ms Saywell said.

“It was a vivid display of community talent and spirit and there was a new and exciting vibe about what is a treasured Euroa event.”

In keeping with the event’s theme, Ms Saywell said the Mutton Dressed as Lamb competition was one of the day’s most popular events.
