Boolara Folk Festival fun

THE picturesque Boolarra and surrounds welcomed thousands of people across the weekend, taking in three days of musical performances and free folk-festival fun.

About 7000 people took to Boolarra’s Railway and Centenary parks on Saturday following the Boolarra Folk Festival’s opening night at arcYinnar.

Musicians took crowds back to the medieval period through to soulful reggae and impressive guitar skills, while market-goers perused about 75 stalls.

With organisers receiving positive feedback once again, this year’s folk festival has been deemed another success.
