Something for everyone for Jacaranda Picnic in the Park

BY THE time Saturday rolls around, there will have been plenty of action in Market Square but nothing quite like what will be on the stage for the Jacaranda Picnic in the Park.

The varied program includes the announcement of the float procession winner, performances by belly dancers, the Indian-inspired Bollywood Sisters from Byron Bay and Aboriginal dancers.

There will be a welcome to country, food stalls and the winner of the major $1000 raffle will be drawn.

Organiser Wendy Taylor said last year was the first time the picnic had been held in recent years, but it was so well received it was an easy decision to put it on again.

"Everyone is already all down the street all ready for the parade," she said.

"Everyone can bring their picnic rugs and chairs."

  • The picnic starts at 6pm after the Jacaranda float procession.
