THE 60TH ANNIVERSARY DIAMOND JUBILEE
OF THE ALEXANDRA BLOSSOM FESTIVAL 24TH SEPTEMBER 2016
WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!!

On a lovely 20-degree sunny day, the 'Blossom Fest' had an estimated record audience for the parade and the park of over 16,000 people. Magnificent 7 enthralled the crowd playing all their hits and then even did a 20 minute encore. It was also the largest craft market in Blossom Festival history with over 55 food wine and craft beer sites that fed and watered the huge crowd.
