Fun food bowl treats

October 09, 2017

Out and about: People enjoy last year's Numurkah Food Bowl Festival.

The Numurkah Food Bowl Festival is dishing up a range of goodies as it enters its ninth year.

With something for everyone, the three-day festival is set to showcase all Numurkah has to offer.

‘‘Numurkah is such a rare gem and if you give it a bit of a polish, it just shines,’’ festival director Jamie Lea said.

Last year’s festival attracted 3500 people on the Saturday alone and this year is expected to be no different.

Ms Lea said the town was serving up a particularly great bunch of events, with groups, such as the Numurkah Singers, coming on board to perform and the historical museum shedding light on the town’s vibrant history.

Events to look out for include the Long Slow Brunch and the St George’s Anglican Parish hall high tea — both on Sunday.

But these are not the only events people may like to head along to.

During the festival people will also have the chance to witness the skateboard competition, venture out for breakfast with the birds or enjoy Movies @ Numurkah — all on Saturday.

Ms Lea said it was hard to pick a highlight out of the event line-up because there were so many things happening, catering for different tastes and ages.

‘‘There are so many options, for me the highlight is the street parade on the Saturday,’’ Ms Lea said.

The street parade is at 2pm on Saturday and has people gather to watch an exciting display from the footpath focused on promoting the message of community togetherness.

Ms Lea said events such as the Numurkah Food Bowl Festival were not possible without support from the community and sponsors.

Dyson’s IGA, GrainCorp and Numurkah LOL have all played a strong role, along with the Numurkah Food Bowl Festival committee and many other sponsors, in making the event possible.

The Numurkah Food Bowl Festival will be on Friday, October 20, to Sunday, October 22. For information about the events across the three days and prices, visit
