King Valley End of Harvest Festival

leave a comment »

The King Valley grape harvest is over and the vineyards are now preparing for the winter long pruning season.

However, before that happens, the whole district took time out to attend the End of Harvest Festival held on 23rd April at the Whitfield Primary School.

It was a big family day with hundreds of tourists and locals celebrating the end of harvest with gourmet food stalls, wine tastings and live music. There were also a variety of local prpduce and craft stalls to tempt the visitors.

A new feature of the 2006 festival was the Myrtleford Helicopter Joy Rides taking the locals up to visit their homes from the air. The joy rides were well utilised.

The King Valley Tourism Association did a wonderful job of decorating the festival with wine casks draped in grapes and decorated hay bales. (Click on the thumbnails for full screen photos)
