Here they are, the candidates for Queen of this year's 75th Grafton Jacaranda Festival.
THE 75th Grafton Jacaranda Festival has officially begun with the unveiling of the new crown.
IN 1989 Fiona Stone was crowned Jacaranda Queen in Grafton - on Saturday she will release her debut album Indifference.
WITH the jacaranda trees in full bloom and the annual festival fast approaching, local businesses are being encouraged to participate in the festivities.
THE weather might not have been too friendly for a fishing competition, but apparently the fish didn't care.
MIKE Dougherty might never get to become a Jacaranda Queen, but at least now he gets the chance to crown one.
