Cara Haley and Ryder McMullan get into the Winter Blues spirit.

Echuca-Moama’s Winter Blues Festival is usually a chance for people to enjoy the talents of others.

This week the festival committee has called on residents, particularly students, to show their artistic abilities.

About 150 guitars are available from Echuca Heritage Sweets in High St, as part of the festival’s annual guitar decoration competition.

There are prizes for the best designs in a range of age categories.

The competition is open for people aged six and under, seven to 10 years, 11 to 14 years, 15 to 17 years and over 18.

Entries are $5 a guitar, with the winners to be judged at an exhibition at the Customs House, Leslie St, on Tuesday, July 22.

All entries will be displayed in Echuca’s High St and Port precinct businesses during the Winter Blues Festival on July 25 to 27.
