Echuca-Moama’s annual Celtic Festival is still looking for friends.
Festival organiser Ross Veale issued the challenge to regional businesses and residents to befriend the March festival through a $110 donation.
Mr Veale said the festival had about 30 friends who had already paid up and organisers were looking for more supporters to help pay for free entertainment throughout the weekend.
He said the celtic festival was a not-for-profit event, with any money made from the weekend to cover running costs.
‘‘We do not have a lot of revenue streams. We are asking for people or businesses to chip in and help an event which brings thousands of people to the region each year,’’ he said.
This year’s festival, from March 15 to 17, would feature world renowned flautist Wouter Kellerman, as well as musical acts, street artists, vikings, a 2.75m Scotsman and his dog, pipe bands and a country fair.
Mr Veale said people who became a friend of the festival would receive a promotional flag for their business, an invitation to the festival launch on Thursday, March 14, as well as recognition in the festival program and website.
‘‘You will also get enormous community satisfaction,’’ he said.
Mr Veale said anyone wanting to become a friend of the festival could deposit $110 to the festival’s bank account. Bendigo Bank BSB: 633000. Account Number 141373183.
He said people wanting information could call Keith Rowland on 0418 505 925.
