THE Tolga Scarecrow Festival committee has put the call out for those keen to assist with this year’s event in a range of various ways to register their interest online. 

Whether you have an interest in joining the committee, volunteering, offering sponsorship packages, providing entertainment or displays or just want to confirm yourself as a stallholder, you’re invited to do so at www. tolgafestival.com.au. 

“The Atherton Tablelands Chamber of Commerce is delighted to be supporting the Tolga Scarecrow festival this year,” event spokesperson Bree Hargraves said. 

“Tamara Taylor from Far North Chiropractic has been involved in the festival for several years and has volunteered to take the reins as the event coordinator. 

“Like all events we will be relying on the community to put their hand up to support the event by volunteering, sponsoring or attending.” 

Scarecrow Festival event coordinator Tamara Taylor said as always there will be plenty to see and do at the event. 

“The scarecrow competition with individual, school and business entries is always the highlight of the festival, as well as the showcasing of local products, produce and businesses,” Ms Taylor explained. 

“The community choice scarecrow award where the community votes using tokens to determine the winner, is also always a hit. 

“The old style fun, games and entertainment have also proved popular in the past. “This community event allows local entertainers to showcase their talent and let the community know that they are here. 

“It also allows a forum for community groups and schools to set up interactive displays, stalls and games to enable community fundraising. 

“We are thankful to have received a donation from the Mount Emerald Wind Farm Community Fund.” 

As mentioned if you’re keen to sponsor this event visit www. tolgafestival.com.au for more information. 

The festival will be held on October 30 and everyone is invited to join in the fun.
