Up to 10,000 people made their way to the Manjimup CBD during the 17th annual Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival on Saturday.
Festival coordinator Pam Bodsworth said about four tonnes of cherries, in addition to a lot of other produce such as apples and avocados, were sold during the event.
“I’m elated that it went so well, we saw so many people there enjoying themselves, with smiles on their faces and having a good time,” she said.
“The volunteers were fantastic once again and I have to thank everyone involved.”
Mrs Bodsworth said the entertainers, including the Australian Navy Band WA, The Filth and Table for Two Trio, were all well-received and she also thanked event MCs Jon Doust, Wyatt Nixon-Lloyd and Courtney Monahan.
She also said the Long Table Lunch on Sunday was a success and thanked Newton Orchards owner Harvey Giblett for supplying his orchard as the venue and his team for making it look as good as it did.
Mrs Bodsworth thanked the stall holders for their support and congratulated them on their success on Saturday.
“I also have to thank the growers for their ongoing support each year,” she said.
“Thank you to Don Hancey, the chefs and all their crew for everything they did out at the Long Table Lunch.
“It is also important to recognised the invaluable contribution of the SES and St John Ambulance; without them, we could not hold an event.”
Mrs Bodsworth also thanked her committee for their dedication to making the festival happen and welcomed “new faces and fresh ideas” to join the committee.
Manjimup shire president Paul Omodei called the festival marvellous and said the organisers deserved the highest praise.
