Speed, grace and agility at Woodburn Riverside Festival
SPEED, grace and agility were all evident on the Richmond River at the Woodburn Riverside Festival on October 11, thanks to the skills of Queensland waterski series participants and our own Northern Rivers Water Ski Club.
Tina McKew, of Broadwater, showed her ex-Seaworld skills as she took to the water, performing some graceful movements, including a 720-degree spin.
The theme for this year's festival was Sunshine Sugar and there were many displays of history and art done by local school children, including a model made out of recycled material of the Broadwater Mill. Broadwater, Woodburn and St Joseph's primary schools entertained the crowds throughout the day, as did Evans Head Preschool and Just Dance! Cheerleaders.
The annual event has now also had the honour of being included in the Sydney Weekender website.
"We've had people coming to us now wanting to be part of the festival," co-ordinator Pam Bellingham said.
The day finished with a spectacular fireworks display from Woodburn Bridge and a live band.
