Hay bale art will feature as a new attraction in this year’s Benalla Festival, to run from November 1 to 9.
The artistic feature will help to celebrate this year’s Benalla Festival theme, Regional Harvest.
‘‘A hay bale art touring trail will feature as part of this year’s program to celebrate the theme of regional harvest, celebrating our local producers, taking visitors on a journey from Benalla around our rural villages, where there’s a lot for visitors to discover,’’ Benalla Rural City Mayor Barbara Alexander said.
‘‘Our rural villages will be a vital part of this year’s program, not only with the hay bale art trail, but with hot air balloons, art exhibitions, open gardens, cycle events, and local food and wine,’’ Cr Alexander said.
Other events include the iconic foreshore entertainment and street parade, as well as theatre, open kitchen gardens, and the increasingly popular writing competition.
The festival will feature events in Benalla as well as Baddaginnie, Devenish, Goorambat, Tatong and Thoona.
