Classic cars on display at Cohuna Festival were part of the rock 'n' roll appeal of the revamped event.


Organisers have hailed the inaugural Cohuna Festival a resounding success.

Wendy McGlone said the weekend’s event, formerly Austoberfest, was ‘‘fabulous’’ with about 1000 people in attendance, well above expectations.

‘‘All the food stalls did extremely well — the Lion’s Club was run off its feet.’’

Ms McGlone said the vintage fashion parade, vintage car display and dancing all went down well with the crowd.

‘‘The entertainment (provided by band The Hoffmans) was A-class, it was just superb.’’

Winners of the duck derby were Beth Woods and Kath Bowman.

‘‘Everybody just had a great time, the atmosphere was fantastic and the weather, thank heavens, was on our side, a perfect night.’’

She said the community responded well to the event and the small changes made this year.

‘‘I had a good feeling that it would be a really, really good night.’’

All proceeds to the Cohuna Progressive Association will fund the New Year’s Eve fireworks display.
