United Community supports the Nameless Festival
The annual Nameless Jarndunmunha Festival is a gala event held on the first weekend in August. The Festival includes a street parade which is the opening event for the Saturday celebrations, sideshows, novelty games and races, art and craft exhibits and spectacular fireworks displays. Also this year Diesel performed live, with Stone Circle as the opening act.
The whole town becomes involved in the event, by making floats for the parade, putting up a stall or partaking in the King of the Mountain race.
Each year the Festival has a theme. This year it was celebrating 40 years, many of the float entries reflected the theme as a big birthday celebration. The community really gets involved in the street parade event with the event being a focal point for the children of the town.
This year United Community's Tom Price branch joined the parade with our Junior Saver mascot, SuperBug. This went down a treat with the children who lined up for a balloon and sweet from the big green bug. The motor cross and BMX bikes were also impressive as were the school floats and pony club displays.
