2 Festivals we do every year are the Elvis Festival in Parkes in January and photos and story can be viewed on my blog. Also the Guyra Lamb and Potato Festival in January also a good one and can be viewed on my blog.
The Charters Towers Country Music Festival is small but good and is on on the May Day Weekend each year.
The Gladstone Harbour Festival is also one of the best run festivals I have been involved with and is over Easter each year.
We will be there again this year as well as Charters Towers if you want a bit of a story and photos.
