ALL events held during Wool Week are up for review as the committee prepares to make arrangements for 2015.

About 30 residents from the Strathbogie Shire attended a meeting last week in Euroa to discuss the future of one of the town’s oldest festivals.

Wool Week, a Euroa tradition for the last 38 years, was revamped this year, incorporating a number of different events which were successful with locals.

Under the umbrella of the Euroa Spring Festival, annual events such as the Euroa Agricultural Show (held in late October) and the Wool Week parade are held and they are major drawcards for families.

This year, after the traditional parade, Binney Street was transformed into what is now known as ‘A Day on Binney’, with a pop-up park, The Binney Feast and the unique ‘Mutton Dressed as Lamb’ competition.

Spring Festival committee member Tess Noonan-Egan said it was good to see a number of different age groups at the meeting last week.
