FINALISTS: Jacaranda Best Dressed Boy Competition

VOTING is now open for the Jacaranda Best Dressed Boy Competition.

The Jacaranda Parade For Youth and Children's Party was a huge hit last year, but the event was one of the many casualties of the cancellation of this Grafton Jacaranda Festival due to COVID-19.

Instead, The Daily Examiner in partnership with Midcoast Family Day Care, has stepped in to help keep the jacaranda spirit alive with the official the 2020 Jacaranda Festival Best Dressed Boy and Girl competition.
