IT’S almost that time of the year again, where the community gets the chance to enjoy the best of Numurkah and its surrounding townships at the Numurkah Foodbowl Festival, but this year is extra special as the festival will be celebrating its 10th birthday.

Running on October 19, 20 and 21, the festival offers a community minded experience like no other where you can celebrate local makers and producers, music, art, dance and much more.

Jamie Lea said, “It’s an exciting year…The foodbowl festival has reached its 10th birthday, which is an incredible achievement for the town and everyone who has participated in some way over the years. I know the committee is very proud and so they should be.

“We are excited to have fireworks on the Friday night after the free outdoor movie screening.

“On Saturday, thanks to Dysons IGA, we will have the street festivities and this year most of Melville Street will be closed off. On Sunday we see a new event with a come and try fishing for the whole family plus much more over the three days.

“Last year we had a post event debrief and the feedback was positive. Without ideas and opinions we could never continue to grow and evolve. I’d like to thank those who attended.

“The parade is by far my favourite part of the weekend. To see the attendees line the streets and beaming from ear-to-ear makes the years of work all worth it.

“We strongly suggest anyone with a connection to the region to please register on the website and be involved.

“The festival couldn’t happen without volunteers and this year we are all about many hands make light work. You’ll find the volunteer application form on the website and no matter what your skill or availability we will find a role for you.”
