Event runs from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM


Join them for a free and fun day out in celebration of Glen Innes Severn community's newest icon, the White Rock Wind Farm! The focus is on community participation for all with creativity at the fore. Local artists will run a number of wind-related arts activities – kite making, wind toys, wind chimes and paper plane constructions. With the help of The Bubble Lady and her amazing secret formula, come and enjoy making your very own amazing giant Bubbles at her Interactive Bubble Stations! Live music will also be a feature with a series of performances by local choirs, wind and brass players. They are also thrilled to be joining forces with The Makers Shed, Glen Innes as they relocate their High Country Handmade Showcase down to the park to join in the festivities on the day. This unique handmade shopping experience is for those seeking to meet the artisans behind some of the region's finest products and get tips on their skills! The day will culminate in a performance by carrot player extraordinaire Linsey Pollak at The Chapel Theatre. Linsey is well known all around Australia as a musician, instrument maker, composer, musical director and community music facilitator.
