The Cork and Fork returned to Wagga yesterday for the last time this year at the Civic Precinct.
There was no better way to kickstart summer and celebrate the end of spring, with the festival joined by local food, Borambola Wines and live music by local musicians.
Naomi Miller from Borambola Wines, who hosts this free community event, said it was a “fantastic night” which saw about 1800 people coming along.
“The community came out and supported the launch of the Carevan and we also had the Murrumbidgee Rotary selling Christmas ham and there were a lot of people who went into the draw for that,” Ms Miller said.
“I think this brought out more people and numbers and the weather was great, it was a beautiful evening and therefore a lot of people joined and started their holiday season by getting into the mode of Christmas.
“We also had some young local musicians who played, like 12-year-old Roy Phillips from Tumut and this was his first time singing at Cork and Fork and we had some really positive comments about his music.”
Ms Miller described the events as a “really successful” night as well as the addition of new food vendors.
The next Cork and Fork will be held next year in February.
