Griffith comes alive with an amazing display of more than 70, larger than life, three dimensional Citrus Sculptures. The Citrus Sculptures line the main street of Griffith, creating a spectacular gateway to the city and are on display for two weeks. The Sculptures are wacky and creative and include a grand piano, a giant guitar, a chook, talking robot and a Cinderella inspired carriage with horses.
The Sculptures are unique to Australia, and are based on the famous lemon sculptures of Menton, France. They are created using 100,000 oranges and an army of 700 volunteers. Sculptures are created by schools, service clubs, community groups and multi-national companies - it is a fabulous community event.
The Sculptures are free to visit and lit at night to extend viewing.
The Sculptures are the hero event of the Griffith Spring Fest. Also visit the open gardens at the Garden Festival, the Multicultural festival, join in the festivities at the Launch Party or book a seat on the garden tour bus - there is plenty going on in Griffith during Spring Fest.
