REVEALED: Jacaranda Best Dressed Competition winners
WITH a total of almost 100 entries, 40 finalists and more than 1000 votes, the winners of the 2020 Jacaranda Best Dressed competition have been confirmed.
Events such as the Jacaranda Parade For Youth and Children's Party are traditionally a huge hit of the Jacaranda Festival, providing a great opportunity for the region's younger generation to dress up and celebrate the city's traditions. But the cancellation of this Grafton Jacaranda Festival due to COVID-19 threatened to take much of the colour out of Grafton this spring.
So The Daily Examiner in partnership with Midcoast Family Day Care stepped in to help keep the jacaranda spirit alive with the official the 2020 Jacaranda Festival Best Dressed Boy and Girl competition.
