Youth Week over, but more to come

BY ADRIAN MILLER

YOUTH Week 2005 finished on Sunday night, but not before one final party in South Grafton.

Youth Fest 2005 was held at McKittrick Park, and the 300 teenagers who attended did not leave disappointed.

The crowd was rocked by a Battle of the Bands competition, which was won by band Swarno, and grooved along to a hip-hop demonstration by students from Maclean and South Grafton high schools.

Music wasn't the only creative medium on display, with body art and the 'Go to the Wall' graffiti art project on display.

Clarence Valley Council youth development officer Sarah Ford said the evening was a great success.

"Everyone really got into the music and dancing and it was just a really great night," she said.

Youth Week 2005 might be over, but another event will visit the Valley soon.

Wherrett Park in Maclean will host the Totally Wicked event on Anzac Day, which will feature BMX riders, skateboarders and in-line skaters giving a demonstration and holding a clinic.

Running from 1-4pm, it is hoped local bands will also perform..
