Borough full of colour for annual Dahlia and Arts Festival

The Borough was buzzing at the weekend as the Eaglehawk Dahlia and Arts Festival took over.

Wherever you looked there was no shortage of arts, literature, film, and family activities on display over the weekend.

Leading the way was the Eaglehawk UFS Dispensary Dahlia and Arts Street Procession on Saturday afternoon.

Festival president David Richards said he loved the feel of Eaglehawk at Dahlia and Arts time.

“It’s the spirit in the Borough. You can't buy it, you can't see it but you can feel it. It probably comes from Cornish ancestors. Everyone hops in and gets a job done,” he said.

“Everyone who helps is a volunteer, which is pretty unique. We’re just a group of people from the community.

“What I saw of the procession was fantastic. Officials believe the crowd is up on last year and it was a beautiful day.

“One of the things I love about the festival is it brings everyone out from the community.”
