River festival call for steward volunteers

A call has been made by the organisers of the Kilcullen River Festival for volunteer stewards both for the Triathlon on the Saturday night and parts of the main festival on the Sunday afternoon, writes Brian Byrne.

The volunteers can be rostered to work for a short period, and the organising committee hopes that some group might offer their members for the occasion.

In the meantime, preparations are going well for the event on 23 August, the sixth time it has been held. In addition to the familiar format of food and trading stalls, river events including the Lions Club Duck Race and the Raft Race, there will be a Soap Box Derby down the hill from Hillcrest.

Local bands are lined up to provide non-stop entertainment until 6pm, and there will be an extra emphasis on family-friendly attractions, including a Pets Competition.

Businesses and clubs have been circulated with a request to provide candidates for the Festival Queen, who will be selected at the Festival Launch Reception on 14 August in Fallons.

We'll keep you posted on the Diary as more information develops.
