We expect a lot of day trippers from Sydney, Canberra and the region and we look forward to everyone having a great time.- Lenore Schiller.
Happy faces, lots of laughter, music, colour and fun are promised in one of the state’s best regional festivals to be held in Young on December 2, 3 and 4.
Currently in its 67th year the National Cherry Festival is a big draw card for the town of Young and the Hilltops region and attracts thousands of people who come to pick delicious cherries straight from orchards, and join in the three-day festivities.
The festival this year offers a strong blend of much loved events like the street parade, fireworks, stalls, busking, Cherry Queen coronations, bush poets, cherry pip spit and pie eating competitions and hand-made, home grown produce, craft and general markets.
According to President of the National Cherry Festival Committee, Lenore Schiller, the town is ready for another cracking event with residents keen to welcome people from far and wide.
“We expect a lot of day trippers from Sydney, Canberra and the region and we look forward to everyone having a great time,” she said.
Keep an eye out for The Young Witness’ Cherry Festival feature to appear in this Friday’s edition.
