Festival showcasing all the things we love about Lennox
YOU'VE got to love good taste, and good talent.
But they don't have to be one and the same.
The Love Lennox Festival, to be held on June 4, will this year again include the popular Flavours of Lennox, with festival-goers able to vote in the People's Choice Award.
And the festival this year will launch the Lennox Got Talent event, and it's anyone's guess what kind of talents will be on show!
But you can be sure that the musicians of the Northern Rivers Conservatorium will have plenty of talent when they perform at the festival for the first time.
Debbie Smith, president of the Lennox Head Chamber of Commerce, is the co-ordinator of the chamber event.
It's now in its fourth year, and Ms Smith said its success was because it really struck a chord with locals, and those from the outside the area, too.
"Everybody does love Lennox," she said.
"We have our own vibrancy.
"Vibrancy and enthusiasm brings out the best of Lennox Head and its businesses."
The event costs about $20,000 to put on, with much of that coming from local businesses through financial and in-kind support, supported also by a community donation from Ballina Shire Council.
"The reality for small towns is that we must band together as business and community to put Lennox Head on the map," she said.
The festival will be held from 9am in the coastal village, with the daytime activities, including stalls and entertainment, to be held in Ballina St along from the beach front, from the Lennox Hotel south through to the Seagrass shop.
Back this year will be the surfboard swap meet, the Dogs of Lennox show, Town and Gown art exhibition at the public school and Jazz by the Sea in the evening at the Lennox Head Cultural and Community Centre, along with an historic exhibition at the community centre.
