The Benalla Festival has been hailed a success with record crowds across all events.
Friday’s Mair St Mural Party kicked off the program with free entertainment, great food and wine, followed by a spectacular fireworks finale while Saturday’s street parade led into a non-stop afternoon of foreshore entertainment. The long awaited appearance of Shannon Noll lived up to the hype with a spectacular acoustic performance thrilling those present.
When Noll turned his microphone to the crowd during his popular rendition of What About Me, thousands of voices could be heard singing along.
Sunday saw more crowds flock to all the fun of A Day in the Gardens, with a teddy bears’ picnic, abseiling, face painting and a variety of stalls selling everything from coffee to hotdogs, soaps to scarves and much more.
A combination of great weather, an array of food and coffee vendors, fantastic kids’ activities, and a plethora of musical entertainment proved to be a huge success for this year’s festival and organisers said they were thrilled with the three-day event.
