Artistic in force at Maclean expo
THE 40th Lower Clarence Arts and Crafts Association (LCACA) Expo at the Maclean Showground at the weekend was one of the best, LCACA publicity and promotions officer Pam Turner said yesterday.
Mrs Turner said the event had proved to be a wonderful success with people from throughout the Valley backing the dislay.
"The whole weekend went wonderfully well," she said.
"It was beautiful weather with not a hint of rain so many people, probably more than last year, attended."
Mrs Turner said there had been many highlights over the course of the weekend, even if some of them were off to shaky starts.
"The brush-off competition was really funny because no-one entered it at first," she said.
"So three members of the association ended up painting to get it going and a beautiful six-year-old girl ended up raising the most amount of money and winning the competition."
Mrs Turner said the art and craft stalls again proved to be popular.
"So many people stopped by to watch the arts and crafts people doing their arts. They were really fascinated to watch how things were done," she said.
"Most people really joined in the spirit and the whole weekend went very well. It was quite wonderful."
