One of the most iconic events in the South West is ready to celebrate a special milestone next weekend. The Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary as thousands flock to the town for a massive day of fun on Saturday, December 11. This year’s festival will include all of the classic favourites such as the vehicle parade, live music, the pip-flicking contest, circus and theatre acts, the Southern Belle fashion parade, the long-table lunch, log chopping and cooking demonstrations, as well as stalls, displays, competitions, endless family activities and much more. A new addition to this year’s line-up will see a free concert to keep the festivities going in the Brockman Street complex with a huge night of entertainment. The likes of Stuey V as Elvis, Aboriginal elder Dr Richard Walley, Head Over Heels Acrobatics and The Hep Shakers will take to the stage with live music and performances from 6pm until 10.30pm. The family-friendly event will include a licensed area and delicious food from all the local eateries along Brockman Street. This year’s festival parade is also set to be the biggest and best of the last 20 years. Festival organisers are inviting all local businesses to get involved this year by featuring their sign-written business vehicles in the parade, which consists of vintage and veteran vehicles including cars, trucks, motorcycles and, more recently, tractors. The parade departs the Imperials Football Club grounds at 9.50am and is expected to reach the main stage about 10am. Anyone who wants to participate can contact vehicle parade co-ordinator Mike Cully on 0428 771 201 or email@example.com.
