Jumpers and Jazz

Warwick has a winter festival of colour, fibre, Yarnbombing, music, food and fun. Here in SE Queensland, when it comes to ‘tree jumpers’ – dressing a bare tree – we’ve got this! The festival brings crafters from far and wide, the colours and designs are so clever and fabulous! This year’s theme was ‘Crackers’.

It does matter how flamboyant your outfit is, the more colourful, the better.

Saturday morning was the big breakfast in Freestone, 15 minutes from Warwick. The event was a fund-raiser for the community and the local hall was packed and noisy with diners and convivial chatter.

Back to town, the main street was pumping with Jazz bands and swing dancing. There are pop-up shops and street food as well as all our cafes serving the best of local deliciousness.

Saturday night was the Bonfire night in Killarney. It was very boggy and muddy from all the recent rain, so that took a lot of the fun away for me. But the fire drum competition was well done.

Today was classic cars in the main street. There were so many cool cars, classic and vintage, motorbikes, they filled the main street and flowed on into the adjacent streets that line Leslie Park in the centre of town. All through the morning, Jazz bands played, and more swing dancing, the vibe was relaxed, colourful and fun.

This is day three of the 10-day extravaganza, Queensland’s quirkiest winter festival.

Until next time!
