Here we go again



THE wild days of old might be a fading memory on Jacaranda Thursday, but the traditional events that bring the people of Grafton out to party in the streets aren't going anywhere.

Jacaranda Festival manager Anne de Graaf said yesterday she expected thousands to turn out for the breakfast from 6am today in Market Square.

She said it would be business as usual for the street market where up to 100 stalls are expected to set up on a pedestrian-friendly Prince Street.

Employees will take the stage at Market Square around 11.30am to share their typically colourful shows before the day's talent quest gets underway at 1.30pm.

Most hotels in the CBD have stated they plan to stop serving alcohol around 5pm.
