The DOTS were fantastic this year - thanks to all participanting businesses & organisations for putting in a big effort to decorate Myrtleford's windows! Myrtleford RSL President Kevin Pitts judged the DOTS entries and declared Myrtleford Bakehouse
as this year's winner (prize of a half-page colour advertising package - valued at $750, sponsored by Myrtleford Times). Ruby's Cafe
was awarded the Festival President's Choice award. Honourable Mentions go to Paynter Parmesan Accountants
& WAW Credit Union
Facebook People's Choice went to Coffee Chakra
, with runners-up Ruby's Cafe & Myrtleford Cycle Centre.
Opening the Festival with some real FUN
The Festival Opening Ceremony on Friday March 6 in the Myrtleford Piazza was VERY popular, with a big crowd enjoying Bright's Hundred Acre Woods opening concert on a beautiful, mild evening. Federal Member for Indi, Hon. Cathy McGowan AO MP gave a great keynote speech. And then of course, there were the PRINCESSES, including the Princess & Partners' final dance rehearsal on the Piazza's chess board!
